>I finished the 2 x 2 ribbed sweater on the Knitmaster 321 but I don’t think I’ll ever wear it as it’s a really close fit. It’s also a little bit too short for my liking – I think it would look better on someone twenty years younger than myself.
It knitted up fine until I came to do the neckband then it all went wrong. For a start I didn’t have enough of the blue Patons Cameo so I had to use a different colour. I’m not too bothered about that though, after all this was just a practise sweater. I did have a problem sewing the neckband in place though, it’s the first time I’ve knitted one using the method in the book and I just couldn’t get it to look right. What do you think?
Anyway, I decided to remove the neckband and just do a crochet edging which I think looks a lot better:
The more I look at it the more unflattering I think it is. It doesn’t matter though because all the sweaters I’m making from the Mary Weaver Ribber Attachment books are just for practise. If I happen to make one or two that I really like (and that fit me) then it’s a bonus.
The next project in the book one is a dolman sweater with sleeve variations. You can do the sleeves in fair isle, lace or plain. I’m going to have a go at doing them in lace so we’ll see how I get on with that.
Talk to you later,
