Sahara Beginnings

This is the beginnings of Sahara:

The color is actually fairly accurate for once (at least on my computer screen).

The Sahara is worked from neck down. The back is worked first back and forth, then the provisional cast-on (in pink) is picked up for the two fronts which are worked back and forth at once (while the back is on a stitch holder), then the fronts and back are joined up and worked in the round to the end. Stitches are picked up for the neck and armholes (or sleeves). Very little seaming involved! And you can try on as you go. It's going pretty quickly.

I like that one too! You find such good patterns. Interesting how the models are showing so much cleveage, but the gallery of real people look so much more covered up. :)
