and the verdict is: Vertical

Dad gets vertical stripes... I steeked the front panel yesterday for the cardi... I`m a little worried that it might not be "generous" enough for him in the body, but since I`m knitting it side to side, it is a piece of cake to undo the cast off and knit a few more fact, I am going to add armhole shaping and make it a set in sleeve after all...This happens with everything I design: They evolve. I`m just amazed that I am not making it into a raglan sweater...LOL At this is looking like a set in sleeve crew neck zippered cardi...with shallow shoulder caps and shaping (and armhole gussets). That might change...LOL
