This week in WIP Wednesday!
Scary but fun. It goes like this:
You knit (and knit, and knit) planning ahead for things like arms and necks and torso openings.
One yarn in each hand so that you end up with a beautiful tube like this.
In some places, instead of a pretty pattern you just knit with one after the other, making a sort of checkerboard pattern
Then you use your sewing machine and run stitching down either side of the center of that checkerboard.
And then. . .
no, actually it's going really well
See how it's not unravelling? If you look closely you can see black thread where I stitched down the steek.
When done, you have knitting that looks like something vaguely resembling a vest that you can then pick up stitches around to finish the edges.
More to come, as the edges are knit!
