WHAT?? . . . pattern gibberish
Has anyone out there knit this thing? The schematic and instructions made NO sense. I even cut out the shapes and tried folding them every which way and it still didn't make sense. (The yellow tabs are post its, I didn't have any tape in the apartment. One of the many joys of living away from home).
Then I remembered, Vogue is notorious for the need for pattern correction. So, I went on to the web page and found this correction, (pattern #2). So I tried my little arts and crafts project again, and I think I understand it.
Here's my second pass at my little paper sweater (minus the cowl/waist band thingy)
I'm still not entirely sure it will work, but I'm giving it a shot. I'm knitting it up in Wool Ease Chunky, a superwash wool I got at Smileys. It's a natural colored wool with flecks of brown, black and grey in it. I think I like it, but I can't tell until it's finished.
It's either nice or looks like a sweater that went through the washing machine with black and grey kleenex. I don't know, I kind of think it's cool.
On Monday I went to another fab night of bar knitting at Chicks with Sticks. I wore my Tubey sweater so I could get a good picture of it.
