I thought I should update the amendments I have made to by ravi

I cast on 33 sts. 15 cm In order to make the wedge I placed the short row shaping after the icord

With 33 sts there are 15 sts lace and 18 garter of which 3 are icord so I have 15 sts left in which to put my short rows. This is what I have done for Wedge 1

short row shaping row 1 after 2 sts (so 13 knit)

short row shaping row 2 after 5 sts (so 10 knit)

short row shaping row 3 after 8 (so 7 sts knit)

short row shaping row 4 after 11 (so 4 sts knit)

short row shaping row 5 after 14 (so 1 st knit)

Next I increased in wedge 2 by 2 sts from 33 to 35 in row 3 and 9 in the garter sts near the icord

Wedge 3 increase 1 st 35 to 36 in row 7

Wedge 4 increase 2 sts 36 to 38 rows 3 and 9

Wedge 5 increase 2 sts 38 to 40 row 3 and 9

The shoulder now measures 22cms

I now plan to work either 5 or 6 wedges with no shaping before I start decreasing

Due to the differing number of sts I have to adapt the instructions for my short rows

Wedge 2 35 sts 15 lace and 17 garter plus 3 icord

Short row1 turn after 3 sts after icord (so 14 knit)

Short row 2 after 7 (so 10 knit)

Short row 3 after 10 (so 7 knit)

short row 4 after 13 (so 4 knit)

short row 5 after 16 (so 1 knit)

Wedge 3 36 sts 15 lace and 18 plus 3 icord

Short rows as above with adjustment for extra sts evenly spaced

Wedge 5 40 sts 15 lace plus 22 garter plus 3 icord THIS WILL BE repeated until decreased wedges start

short row 1 after 5 (so 17 knit)

short row 2 after 10 (so 12 knit)

short row 3 after 14 (so 8 knit)

short row 4 after 17 (so 5 knit)

Short row 5 after 21 (so 1 knit)

Further measurements when I have completed more wedges!

### Ravi

I have just started Ravi using Madelinetosh DK in tart from my stash.

I have made adjustments since I do not wish to have such a high neckline. So Following my good friend Ilana of My Handmades see http://bespokeknits.blogspot.co.uk/ I have cast on 33 stitches and followed the instructions for the smallest size. I am using Japanese short rom shaping using safety pins and have started by short rows 2 sts away from the icord.

On the second wedge I have increased in row 3 and row 9

I have taken a picture of it at this stage.
