>Last week I knitted the back (or it could have been the front) of my leftover sweater. I have since knitted both the sleeves and this afternoon I decided to knit the front (or it could be the back).
After I’d knitted it I put it next to the other one, notice anything wrong here?
Have another look:
Same punchcard, same carriage setting – tuck, same tension, changed the yarn in the feeder every two rows. I know exactly what I did wrong. On the first one I knitted the first two rows of the pattern in the same colour as the ribbing, on the second one I changed to the contrast yarn for the first two rows of the pattern and that completely changed how the pattern looks. But do you know what? It can stay like that. This is after all just a sweater made from leftovers. It will probably only be worn in the house or when I’m doing the gardening. Who cares whether the pattern matches or not? In other words, I can’t be bothered to pull it out and re-knit it. A lot of the wool has already been knitted, pulled out and re-knitted, it was just a shame to throw it away when there was enough to make something out of it. So this will be another of my hideous creations but don’t worry, my next one will be wonderful – maybe.
