Beach House KAL: Week 3

Join the Beach House KAL

For this third week, let’s aim to get the Upper Back completed. This includes instruction from “Upper Back” all the way to the end of the “Back Neck Short Rows”.

Last week’s row upon row of mesh stitch might have been relaxing (or boring!). This week will definitely mix it up!

  • First up, you’re going to be working flat from now on, so make sure you’re referring to the correct mesh stitch instructions.
  • Second, you’re going to start creating that super fun V of garter stitch across the shoulders. This is done by working one more stitch on each side of the V in garter each row. Make sure you keep track of that V in whatever way makes the most sense to you. You can use stitch markers, write down the stitches in each section, or even do it by eye alone (if you’re SUPER good at reading your knitting).
  • Once you get through that garter stitch V, you’ll be creating the pleat. You can check out this photo tutorial from Classic Elite to see some images of how your pleats will look while you’re working them. All that stitch folding might get confusing! 
  • And then finally, to end off this week, there’s the Back Neck Short Rows. By now you’re a total Beach House short row pro, so these puppies should be old hat!
