Wondrous Woven Cables, from Knitter's, Fall 2000
Yarns: Plymouth Yarn Mushishi -- 3.5 skeins (1,600 - 1,700 yds)
Method: Hand knitting
Completed: July 19, 2012.
|Side view -- you can see that
the broad stripes of front and back do not line up. But, the
patterning is coordinated enough that this doesn't seem too distracting.
|Sleeve... this is an object
lesson for why you should block and then
seam. The seam is not stretchy and is stuck at the length of the
sleeve when it was first knit (before soaking). On the other
hand, the sleeves are now too long, so the seam helps to keep it in
line with where it was meant to be...
|Detail of the shoulder
join. Worked out reasonably smoothly.
