However, throughout the novel the main character kept wanting to create a sweater. So, by the end of the story, so did I. I transformed the Whodunnit Shell into the Whodunnit short sleeve cardigan. (I hate long sleeves.) I followed the directions for the back in garter stitch, then split the front into two different pieces. I picked up the stitches for the sleeves and made them in stockinette stitch and finished with four rows of k2,p2 ribbing. I decided it was too short, so I crochet…
