I live in the quaint Alpine City of Gaylord MI. I learned to knit from my great grandmother at the age of 8. I am also known as O/C Knitiot, and I come by it naturally. Everything has to match & balance in my knitting. My friends tease me, but I secretly fear they will bury me with mismatched socks to get even.
This cover-up is knit in one piece with no finish work. If you are familiar with my similar patterns, "Entwined" and "Braided Glory", they are smaller than Mamma Mia. Mamma Mia is ample and can be safely knit for plus size women. I love this version and wear mine all the time. Beware though, you will get lots of compliments and people wanting to know how you did it!
You start knitting on the back lower edge, bind off neck stitches and continue down the front working one or both sides at once. Continue with the fingers, weave them together and finish your tails.
Directions include both chart and written directions.
5 stitches, 6 rows per inch
Gauge is not a big issue with this project.
