When I choose a new knitting project I often ask myself if there’s anything new to learn. Now, I’ve been knitting a few years but by no means know it all. One of the reasons I chose Betts Lampers Autumn Colors Fair Isle cardigan was that I was curious about the construction at the shoulders. What I hadn’t considered was how I might approach the sleeves. But a few weeks ago I decided that I didn’t want to knit these in the same manner I usually do.
In this short video I take you through just a few of the options I considered and the one I’ve chosen.
Only about 33 rounds remain on the sleeves and then I can join the sleeves to the body and begin the fun of knitting the shoulders in the way Betts chose.
But before I get to that – I have a few steeks to cut and some seaming, which I’ll share in the next video (in about ten days to two weeks).
For those of you following alone and are curious I’m using Jamieson & Smith 2 ply jumper in shades 36, 21, 142, 132, 32, 125, 93, 9097, 2, 202, and FC47.
