Kewl!!! Got me a teacher. But, I have to admit this is one thing you will likely never have to do. I just can't see myself ever being ready for this...But it's nice to know you are willing if I get the nerve up. Thanks, Ingy!!!

It's been finished for a while, but I forgot to take a picture. I figured it belonged at the end of this.

Ingrid....I am .... speechless
Okay, I'm back!!!.....SIMPLY STUNNING!! How long did that take to knit? I'm really curious. After I finish my long project list I hope to begin sweaters/garments around the 1st of the year and this is my chosen form of knitting...in the round...so thanks a BUNCH for the tutorial !! Of course, who knows when I will attempt such a masterpiece as this....just beautiful, my friend, beautiful :D

Thanks, Rebecca! It's hard to say how long it took because it was one of those start/stop projects. I loved the colors of the yarn from another sweater so I started this one, ran out of yarn, which I expected, had to wait for a back order, was busy with other stuff, etc, etc.

I'm sure you'd have no problem with a sweater like this--and you'd get it done a lot faster, too!

Ingrid, that sweater is AMAZING! So beautiful!

I really like the way the two-color pattern on the sweater decreases inward around the neck steek, then when you cut the steek, magically, the pattern looks "flat" again -- so cool!

How did you end up resolving the back-neck issue? It looks great in the finished photo.

(Oops! couldn't help myself!)


PS - to everyone who hates sewing machines, in "Knitting for Anarchists" Anna Zilboorg shows a steek method that requires only a yarn needle -- no sewing machines.

I never had a problem sewing... I think I was born to do it. I made a two piece bathing suit and fit in it perfectly, and I've made dresses and such since then. I've been sewing for a year It's a shame that a lot of you guys can't sew very well. I'm somewhat addicted. At least, I'm addicted to buying patterns hehe.

As for this semi tutorial, it's great Ingrid! I'm just a little confused as to how you'd knit the sleeves around. You said without cutting the steeks, you'd have no arm holes....that I understand because there was one a small hole left for the arm hole at a certain point and then u cast on and kept knitting in the round. But my question is, how did you go back and knit the sleeve down after acutally cutting the stitches? Maybe I'd have to try this to really understand, but I'm quite confused at the moment as to what you do right after cutting the steeks. Like how you finish it. How do you go about picking up stitches that aren't connected to any other stitches? or do you do that from the good side of the sewing?
