I am officially avoiding the zipper. That leaves me with 11 days until I leave and a sudden desire to weave in ends. That doesn’t make good blog fodder though. Neither does sewing up the armpit hole. The collar on the other hand…that needs some discussion.
I had originally planned a hood, but no more. It was going to be decorative, not functional. Even if I made it functional, I wouldn’t use it. I’ve never used any of the hoods on the hoodies I already own, no doubt this one would be the same. I’m not really sure why I wanted a hood in the first place? So…time for a new plan. I want a simple collar. I do want a collar though, none of that i-cord bind off business.
I’ve been making the easiest choice possible for this sweater…so my first inclination is just a continuation of the seed stitch, straight up into a square collar that will fold over. Apparently, I haven’t done many collars before…I don’t have an option B in mind. So, feel free, wise knitting denizens of the internet, to make suggestions in the comments! I’d love some more ideas!
