And then there were two.Once I'd fastened the knitting on both sides, I made the first snip:
The next stage was to turn the edges in and sew them down. That caused more panic than the cutting. I was worried it wasn't going to be neat enough. But eventually I got the hang of it and I think it looks fine:
And the inside:
I'm hoping that once I've added the button bands, this stage will be more or less invisible.
Oh, gorgeous ! Step by step, my fear disappeared, too, as you demonstrated :-) Eager to see further.ReplyDelete
You proved to be a deft & competent surgeon :-)
And as you go further, it looks like a half-open zipper !
Now I'm wondering whether a zigzag edge is possible , when you fold?ReplyDelete
Something worth trying on another project ...
I really admire your courage to go where no man has gone before. Well, not strictly true but you get the gist!!!!ReplyDelete
I was wondering about 'fools rush in where angels fear to tread'!Delete
You're a brave woman! ...and it looks good!ReplyDelete
That looks lovely, so neat. Looking forward to seeing the completed cardigan. Did you manage to use the 'rogue' ball?ReplyDelete
I'm using it for the bands and then I'm thinking of using it in conjunction with a regular ball on the sleeves, two rows from each ball perhaps. I do plan to reroll it once I've done the bands. With the ball winder ball, it'll be easy to see the colours.Delete
Wow that look really good very nice work indeed!ReplyDelete
That looks wonderful!! :)ReplyDelete
You have done a great job with the cutting and stitching, I don't think that I would be brave enough to try it. I do like the buttons, they are a perfect match.ReplyDelete
