I thought it best that I start with Elizabeth's underwear, so I skipped a couple of pages.
In the photographs to the left, the examples in the light yarn are from the book. (The lighter yarn was used to show the stitching.)
The book uses K2togtbl (knit two together through back loops) exclusively for a left-leaning decrease. As a single stitch this is not an issue. But when it is part of a line, it can look really messy. I chose to use SSK as it is far tidier.
There is also a mistake in the pattern. For row 33 of the left-hand side of the neckline it states K1, P1, K2, this is wrong. It should be row 33: K2, P1, K1.
While doing the bottoms, I chose to
"(P1, K1) to last st P1" rather than "(K1, P1) to last st K1" as it continued
the rib pattern to the very top.
Next, her underskirt - and now we are into lots of (rather difficult to photograph) black.
Well, here goes. All cast on and ready to go.
