I am making good progress on the Drops Cardigan. Starting with eight balls of yarn, 150 gms has taken me to here.
The first ball of yarn took care of the lower back, the second took me up one front and the third for the second front. Short rows created the curves.
Folded, the sweater looks like this from the front
and like this from the back
placed flat, the upper portion of the back is also knit in garter.
which on close up looks like this,
as I am catching one ridge on each side as I go back and forth. I thought about just knitting it, then sewing a seam under the arms, but really, I don’t see the point. I am considering seriously knitting the sleeves in the round, even with all the purling (I can’t do it by reversing directions since that will affect the patterning) so that I can completely eliminate all sewing….
