That's the song that comes to mind whenever I'm knitting one of my Wallabies. With four complete and three more to go, I will probably have the song memorized and understand all the Aussie terms by heart before my mission is complete.
Now continue to knit across the back of the sweater to the other st marker at the opposite underam.
Here's an aerial view of the join. That gap in the underarm will remain until you finish the sweater and graft it shut. This is what gives the sweater its give and roominess for moving arms. Now continue knitting across the back of the sweater to the other side.
Join the back of the sleeve and then the front of the sleeve making sure the underarm sts on the st holders are directly opposite each other.
Knit around 4 rounds adding st markers at the front and back of each sleeve. These will mark the spots you will decrease every other round for the yoke. Congratulations! You did it. You joined the sleeves to the body of your Wonderful Wallaby. Now that wasn't too hard, was it?
Congratulations! I knew you could do it. Now how many Wonderful Wallabies will you knit? This red one is my fifth one already. I knit my first one this spring. I'm on a kick. I hope to knit 2-3 more before the holidays. Wish me luck.
