PART THREE: body

This section will knit to the where we start the waist.

All sizes have 5 rows where the shaping is worked. decreases across the front and short rows across the back, I have not written any detail regarding shortrow methods but instead will allow you to just do your own and maybe then we can work out what method best suits.
The centre front/back markers are not essential but handy when doing shaping to check where you are up to, back more so.

ok lets go..

I've knitted the body part up....:D

I have also pinned it to the ironing board and taken a photo of what I have done. This is due to the fact I haven't ever seen or heard of soakers until I joined Woolaholics.

So I have a photo on my blog for you to have a look at.

That way I know and more so you know if I am doing it correctly.
