Here are the front and back pieces. I already have the neck and armhole ribbing ready, those will be attached separately.
It is always fun to learn new techniques and I have two, for me new things to show you later this week: a picture heavy post on how to knit a neat V-neck ribbing and one on knitting and attaching ribbings separately.Below pinned before steaming (I always pin and steam the pieces from the wrong side)
The cute triangle-pattern from the right side:
And here it is from the right side. I really like how neat it looks and there are no long floating strands for longer than 2 stitches. Neat and not to mention handy for little baby fingers.
There is a neck opening in the back. On the wrong side I added a few stitches in moss-stitch to keep the edge of the underlayment straight. (On the right side I only knitted the first two stitches in moss-stitch for the same reason)
