THE SWEATER May 2, 2011

Filed under: Knitting,Knitting patterns,Sweaters — Janet @ 10:32 pm

Well, it looks as if it might be o.k.  I’ve done the neck ribbing and he’s tried it on.  Now to sew up a couple of seams and correct a few little blips which I have marked with contrasting markers.  I have an old set of instructions for sweater knitting.  Somehow I like the presentation and I have found the instructions to be tried and true.  How or where or when I acquired these sheets of paper, I do not know.

 one page of the instructions – from the Chamomile Studio, Rangeley Maine

  Hmm, looks as if something might have to be done about those sleeves.  At least he could get the sweater on over his head and the chest size seems to be all right.  I might examine the gussets to check on how roomy or not they have turned out to be. 

The knitting was all done on circular needles, including the sleeves.  However, at the wrist area I just knit back and forth on the circular needle until I had enough stitches to knit in the round comfortably.

  the sweater earlier this morning before I completed the neck ribbing.

    A handsome fellow! And the sweater looks great. A good fit, which is something I find difficult to achieve.

    It looks great Janet. Good luck with the tweaking. I hope it all works out and I look forward to seeing Ian wearing it out and about soon. At least the weather is still cooperating so that he will need it 🙂

    I like those instructions, too. I don’t knit but the handwriting makes me want to.
