Now, with actual progress!!
Last you saw, I had hastily steeked my sweater, decided I didn’t like it and then cut it into even more pieces! This weekend I set about to replace the circular yoke that was the deal breaker.
The plan was to replace the bottom up circular yoke with a top down raglan and graft the pieces together in the middle. Sounded easy enough, yes?
As far as design choices, it took me a while but this is what I settled on. Ultimately, it’s for the best. I was throwing the kitchen sink at this sweater, at the risk of being too busy. At least now it’s got one cohesive idea. There’s still a lot going on with those stripes but less than before, and that’s a good thing!
Ta-DA! It looks like a sweater and I didn’t want to take it off once I put it on. That’s the true sweater test for me. It finally fits right!!
Now, about that button band…
