The upper part of the sweater could be in plain stockinette (and thus easily accommodating short row darts) with a stand-up collar of one row of arcades marching around a somewhat wide crew neckline. I could put that same pyramidal arrangement of arcades around the cuffs too. Hmmm.
I love the stitch patterns in her first 2 books but I hate that they are not charted. I like being able to see the repeats instantly, not having to find them within the written directions. Sometimes the repeats are easy to locate right there between the (Rep from *) but not always. Since 99.9999999999999999999% of all my knitting is 'in the round', knowing which stitches are part of the repeat and which are add-ons needed to make a flat piece symmetrical is paramount. So. I've printed out some blank knitting graph paper from my spreadsheet program and am off to chart a stitch pattern. Back tomorrow with my own swatch, but in the mean time, have a look at The Walker Treasury Project website.
