Fade to Light Jacket MAL: Part 4. Lower body



 Hello and welcome to Part 3 of Fade to Light Jacket make-a-long. Today we will be making the sleeves. If you missed previous parts, please check them here: reveal, sizing and gauge, short rows (Part 1), raglan increases (Part 2) and sleeves (Part 3).

This part is probably the shortest in terms of instructions. You have already been making Spike stitches on the sleeves. And mosaic pattern for the lower body uses the same group of stitches. So hopefully nothing new here.
 
Before you begin with lower body, please, make sure the stitch count after the yoke is multiple of 4 stitches + 3. (It means you should count all your stitches on the lower body, minus three from this number and then the rest should be dividable by four). This is very important to make the beginning and the end of your first row symmetrical. 
 
If your stitch count is not right, you should figure out how many stitches you should add – and make increases accordingly. I recommend frogging last two rows of the yoke and make increases on the first row of those two. 
 
I've recorded a video showing how to do mosaic pattern for the lower body. And in the very end you will see how it is worked in rounds in case you would like add a small cute detail for your cuff.

 
And here are written instructions. Hope you will have fun!
