Sahara Solved August 20, 2007

So here’s my solution: different lace!

At top you see the diamond lace dictated in the patten. Below is #78: Tiny Eyelet Ribbing from the Vogue Stitchionary Vol. 1 (Knit & Purl). It’s actually quite similar to the diamond lace (number of stitches and rows), but it lies flat and, as a ribbing, will tend to scrunch up neatly rather than flutter and ruffle if there’s too much of it.

Anyhow, it’s very successful around the neckline, and not spectacular but good enough at the sleeves. Here she is pre-blocking and with front still unsewn:

Meanwhile, because I’ve been so sick and unable to do much besides knit (and sometimes not even that), I’ve cast on for the 3-hour sweater:

The ribbing alone took more than 3 hours, of course, but it is a really fast knit, even at my current, unenergetic pace. The yarn is Cascade 220 in garnet heather.

Brilliant! I like your version of the ribbing much better.
