Here it is:
There is another picture of the finished sweater, and the specifications here.
I had to do the cast-off on the turtleneck twice. I finished this thing at 2AM last night (don’t ask), and when I tried it on, it barely went over my head. I had done just a plain pullover knit cast-off. I went to bed with my June Hiatt knitting bible, and read about sewn cast-off methods. This morning I ripped out the edge and re-did it, and it turned out perfectly.
The sewn cast-off is pretty easy. I took a couple of pictures, and although they are a bit fuzzy, here they are:
The first step is to put your needle through the second stitch on the left needle as if to knit; pull the yarn through.
Then put your needle through the first stitch on the needle as if to purl, then drop that stitch off the needle. Fiddle with it a bit to make sure it’s not too tight or too loose, and repeat these steps. With the last stitch, go through it as if to knit, then fidget around and find a place to hide your yarn end so it looks right. June’s instructions run to two pages, and are much more detailed, but this is the basic idea.
I’m most proud of the way that the cable drifted into the ribbed collar. The two cable branches continue right up into the columns of ribbing. This was totally accidental, but if I had not done this, I would have ripped and done it over this way.
I’m getting rid of my On The Needles page. It’s too much stuff for me to keep track of. I’ve decided for now to have 2 pages, the main blog page, and the finished project page. At some point I will set up a list in the sidebar for things I’m working on.
