Hey Lovelies! I knit my own 1760 WAK sweater by individually creating the front, back, collar and sleeves of the sweater. (tip: this sweater is made in pieces and stitched together, it is not made top down).
To make this sweater:
I cast on 36 stitches, working the bottom of the sweater in ribbed stitch and knitting in garter stitch for the the front and back of the sweater.
For the sleeves, I also knitted in ribbed and garter stitch. Then I began to make the collar framework and to complete it, picked up stitches to work up its beautiful ribbing.
I then stitched the front and back together as well as attached the sleeves to the sweater's body.
