I had fun browsing through stitch pattern books for the next two patterns in the Red X Gansey.
The trees are a classic gansey stitch pattern. The stars in the top row are from The New Knitting Stitch Library: Over 300 Traditional and Innovative Stitch Patterns Illustrated in Color and Explained with Easy-to-Follow Charts.
I've reached the point where the circular knitting ends.
The back is still on the needle, the front is on a heavy cotton yarn. I can't knit anymore until I figure out what stitch patterns will be on the top front and top back.
The entire sweater is constructed by picking up stitches. No seams except the three needle bind off on the shoulders.
The gussets are half knit. The gusset stitches are on hold until the sleeve stitches are picked up. Then the decrease half of the gusset will be knit as part of the sleeve.
