First sleeve on, second sleeve started. I stuck the lid of my knitting box inside the body to make it “sit up”. Those yellow strings are holding live stitches that I’ll pick up and use to knit the hem and cuffs. Once the second sleeve is on I’ll finish knitting and shaping the yoke area. I love this way of making a sweater because there are NO seams. And if I make it a turtle neck it doesn’t even have to have a designated front and back. Very nice when making a sweater for people who don’t like having to check which way round to hold the thing before popping it on. (Crew neck sweaters need to be shaped a bit, otherwise the neckline ends up cutting the wearer across the adam’s apple.) This little sweater doesn’t have any pattern work but….
This is a sweater I knit for myself years ago – exact same structure as the pink sweater, but this one has, as you can see, stranded color work. The patterns are from a book of Turkish knitted sock designs. The color choice is my own, I love bright colors. I didn’t put cuffs or a hem on this sweater because I generally wear it in such a way that only the yoke area shows.
