Cardi Nearly Finished

Today I knitted the back of the tuck stitch jumper:

Tuck Stitch Jumper Back

It seems to have knitted up slightly smaller than I would have liked so I have decided it will probably be better with short sleeves. I am using the Knit Radar to make this and the pattern I am using has long sleeves so I’ve drawn a pencil line where I think the sleeves should start. Hopefully I’ve guessed it right.

Talk to you later,

    >Thanks Lynne.The cardi has turned out better than I thought it would. I think it's too early to say what the jumper will be like but I think the stitch pattern looks OK.

    >HiI like your cardi it looks very nice without the buttons. The basketweave tuck stitch is nice I knit it with my garter carriage. It is one of my favorite stitches. Your pictures are very good also.

    >You need to get some Love buttons for us to press!!!The red is gorgeous, and the purple is fantastic. I honestly would not have thought of using tuck stitch patterning to pruduce basket weave. Is this dooable on a 24 st punchcard?

    >Thanks Jemajo.The tuck stitch pattern was one I adapted for a punchcard. The original was for an electronic machine. It should have been squares but I didn't quite get it right.
