Finally finished the body and neck and started on the sleeves. I decided to use Magic Loop rather than DPNs for the sleeves so I can knit both sleeves at the same time (similar to doing two socks at the same time). I think I may be able to get this done before the end of February!
A quick question : I got gauge for my Calligraphy Cardigan with a #5 needle. I’m now ready to start the bottom ribbing - should I go down to a #3? Thanks for any help.
That’s what I would do! Hooray for finishing the body…
I’m confused. Help please.
I used a provisional cast on of 127 stitches for my size.
But when I get to neckband it says pick up 100 stitches. What do I do about my other 27 stitches?
Thanks in advance for your help
Forgot to say I’m making the Calligraphy Cardigan
I didn’t do a provisional cast on, but in this case I would pick up all and decrease 27 stitches on the next row.
Anyone doing the capelet??
I’m wondering if it comes down over the shoulder. In the photos it looks more like a collar. I’m interested in doing this if it comes down over the shoulders.
Body of Liberty Tree Pullover is done! Ten inches from the underarm I started the ribbing for 1.5” more, didn’t change needle size and didn’t do any increases.I like a boxy shape. Onward!
Had to spend a few hours shoveling today, so less time than I had hoped for knitting. Finished the first sleeve (still need to sew the hem). I think im too tired to start the second. It may set me back from finishing by month end, but maybe I’ll get lucky.
The ratio is nearly - 5 stitches become 4, or a repeat of -knit 2, purl 1, p2tog- in which you’ll need to replace -knit 1, k2tog- twice. It becomes the recommended knit 2, purl 2 on the next round.
This is just beautiful! xo
I eventually sorted the German short rows instructions out by muddling through, but now I wish I’d seen your post with the tutorial link! Thank you!
That’s what I would do also. I’m making the calligraphy cardigan also. Not quite to smaller needles. Congratulations😍
Ready to finish & block! Very happy with the pattern, yarn, color. Thanks to cdncarol on Ravelry for her help with the cable on the sleeves, and to my friend, Cindy (cinknitting) for giving me the idea about leaving the neckline open. Adaptations: long sleeves with cable, body length increased by 2 1/2 inches, button band started below yoke, ribbing 5x4, neckline bound off with i-cord.
(Forgot to mention that I’m using snaps under buttons and lining the button bands with grosgrain.)
