Think of this sweater as origami. To be folded and finished. This morning I finished the inner maroon, added the black line, then knit the inner grey and navy striped section.
Which means if I fold it and lay it out with the fronts up – you can see that the fronts are both complete.
Since I am knitting this as one piece, this means that I needed to finish off the second half of the back which is being accomplished by knitting back and forth – and knitting into the sides as I go.
completing the upper half of the grey before knitting the blue and grey across the back. One small line of black and I will be ready to tackle the upper back which will take a bit more concentration to join it properly to the bottom of the sleeve fronts on both sides as I go. Nothing like a lot of shaping to keep you awake….. And no, this is not how Hanne Falkenberg wrote the directions. She did the standard: knit three pieces and sew them together.
The only sewing I have planned is the top of the sleeves.
