Filling in Triangles

Moving right along, I picked up along the angles and finished the sleeves, doing a double decrease on every right side row, and on the purl side every 4 rows to taper the sleeves, and SSK or K2tog on the edges to finish off the edge of the sleeves. The sides were worked similarly, but when I got to 30 sts on each side of the side triangles, I inserted a mitered square, and then finished off the triangles sideways for more interest. Now I want to add a bottom and center front garter edging and build up the neckline a little bit. It is coming along, although slowly because in the meantime I got inspired to knit something else!

Fabulous sweater, Jeri! Another amazing design. I hope it is too big for you so that I get to wear it! LOL!

Jeri... I love your sweater. I would love to buy the pattern. How do I do it so that I will have it by the 18th. We are leaving on vacation the next day. How much worsted weight yarn is needed? Sara Miller

Hi Sara:
As you can see, I'm making it up as I go along, using some tricks that I've figured out but haven't gotten into a real patttern format.All the hints are on the blog.I think it will take around 1200 yards for size 38.
I do have a PDF pattern written up for the basic diagonal sweater without the mitered squares. Email me for more info.
