As I mentioned at the end of my last post, I am going to have a go at cut and sew. I have done cut and sew necklines but never a full jumper so I don’t know how this is going to work out.
I was knitting a length of fabric on the Orion in a racked pattern and all was going well until it decided to drop some stitches at the start of a row (it was probably user error). I wasn’t even going to attempt to get it back onto the machine so instead I cast on the Knitmaster 4500 and knitted a length of stocking stitch.
So I now have two more or less equal lengths of fabric with which to make my jumper. I’m thinking I’ll probably make it patterned from the bottom to the armholes then plain the rest of the way up.
I searched ebay for a sewing pattern and found one that I think will be suitable which I bid on and won. It arrived this afternoon and after having a quick read of the making up instructions I think I will be able to manage it alright (famous last words!).
I’m hoping to get it done by the end of this coming weekend.
