Just a few more hours…. August 26, 2007Posted by merp in Knitting.
I need your advice again. You don’t have to be a knitter – you just need to have opinions about clothes.
Here’s my “3-hour sweater” after about one week. Coming right along, as you see.
But remember how I said I don’t do puffed sleeves? Well somehow I like them better here. So I actually tried to puff this one, doing increases as indicated in the pattern, with an additional 1″-worth of increases to compensate for my big arms. But as you see, no puff.
Here’s the illustration:
So what do you think? Should I redo the sleeve with massively more increases to try for something like the picture? Or leave it as is? And do you think the sleeve should be longer, shorter, just as it is now?
Incidentally, it seems most people who’ve completed this on craftster had sleeve results like mine.
Thanks for your thoughts!
P.S. The other sweater is now blocking!
