I wanted to know if you take a look at the sweater on this website. I wanted to know what stitch was used to do the body of the sweater and what pattern was used for the sleeves. The link is[/i][/i]

Can't tell you how to do the sleeves, but it looks like the body alternates between rows of garter, stockinette, and seed stitches with a 3x3(?) ribbing at the bottom and front.

I agree about the body, I believe it is 2x2 ribbing for the bands. The sleeves have alternate sections of stocking stitch and garter stitch but they have also been scallopped in some way.

On zooming right in, I don't think it's garter stitch. The ridges are too thick for that. Perhaps seed stitch for a couple of rows, then a row of plain, then another couple of rows of seed stitch???

The other rows almost look like trinity stitch too, rather than just regular seed stitch. Each "bobble" is bigger than jsut a single stitch.

Kept zooming in and it sure looks like the neck/edge band is a 3 x 3 rib. The "plain" areas are stockinette stitch, another area looks like k1, p1 for a row, then p1, k1 for the 2nd row then k1, p1 for the 3rd row. Then a row of P. Thn repeat the sequence 3 times, followed by the k1, p1 row. I agree w/ Julie, on the trinity stitch. Could the sleeves be crochet? Just looking at the "pick up" from row to row makes me think that is what it is.

Isn't it fun to be able to "read" your knitting!

Those not-garter bands look like welted ribbing to me. Is that what it's called? Alternating a few rows of knitting with a few rows of purling.

That's what it looks like to me, too - welts. My guess would be 3 rows of reverse stockinette, then 2 or 3 of regular stockinette.

And I believe the sleeves are crocheted. A variation on the layered rose technique.

Did you know God was a knitter?

Yes, I agree with you. 3 by 3 ribbing around the edge. The body is worked in stripes of varying width of stockinette, trinity, stockinette, garter, and on the back it looks like some ribbing on the top. I think the sleeves are knit but with a stitch that incorporates short rows and slipped stitches. I made something similar one time and it had the word pouched in the name but I have no idea where to start looking for it now.

I'm not at all qualified to hazard a guess on this sweater. I just wanted to thank Sencere1221 for the link to Their things are gorgeous!
