Winning isn’t always finishing first. Sometimes winning is just finishing.
Just finished. This bolero is knitted using about 900 yards of worsted weight yarn. I started at the cuffs, worked a cable and the sleeve increases along the upper arm then shaped the body and added the garter stitch edge as I worked to the center back. I Kitchner stitched the back together. The back is shaped with increases that put a curve in the bottom edge. The Question is, would anyone be interested in this pattern (especially with the Kitchnered seam)?
[An update on my last post: little buddy, Toby, is healed. His leg injury wasnt serious but the vet found an eye infection that we have treated and cured. Also, I found an inexpensive place to fix my dental plate and it is repaired without even a sign of the break. They fit better as well.]
Oh, this bolero with its long sleeves is beautiful. Is it possible to get your pattern? I want to practice this kitchener stitch seam.
I’m looking forward to getting ist. Thanks a lot.
I love your patterns, but I love your writing as much. Thank you for sharing you thoughts on security and your memory stories. Gilda Radner’s quote brought back memories for me from her book. I want to have courage like she did. I would very much like a copy of the bolero if you have it and I also like the red hat for Michael. You are now on my blog list that I will check in on regularly.
WOW!!! How stunning! 🙂 Are you planning the same for the black birthday wool?
This is lovely.
Every time that I’ve used a Kitchner stitch to join the toes of socks, I’ve lost track and messed up. On socks it doesn’t really matter, but on this sweater it would show, wouldn’t it?
I’m sure I just need more practice.
