It turned out not to be three times the charm but four…..
The Sweater? One of Meg Swanson’s – posted on Ravelry here … It is the Weeping Sun/Moon, an overall picture knit.
So I started the sweater originally somewhere off the Chilean Coast. Knit the bottom as written with purls in among the knit stitches and the pattern starting at the bottom. I wasn’t happy with how it looked. Frog pond.
I reknit first with garter in the dark yarn then added in the pattern. I wasn’t that happy with the gauge or how the garterband appeared and just set it aside till this cruise.
And then realized the consistent error I had made. At least I could rip only back as far as the ribbing this time and reknit.
Now, on to the body from here
Meg, bless her heart just assumes that all of us are bright enough to reverse fore and back ground for front and back since the larger pattern does so. She doesn’t mention it…. and obviously all the charts are just dark dots on white. Sheesh, and I have been knitting for how many decades now?
