Ah, the traditional self-portrait in the mirror. Here it is, laid out on the floor.
A Parched question from yesterday from Linda M.:
Did you make the long ribbed cuffs that are in the pattern? I’m thinking about making a looser 3/4 sleeve with just an inch or so of ribbing. I think it will be easier to wear in the summer that way. Did you like knitting with that yarn?
About the sleeves . . .
Before I started knitting, someone emailed me and told me there was an error in the pattern for P”arched. I asked Rowan, and this was their response:
In reply to your email, there is not actually an error in the sleeves for
Parched. I have checked with our Design Department and apparently the
original garment used in the photograph was amended to 12 rows in the cuff
after the photoshoot.
If you wish to have the longer cuffs I would suggest you knit the length
you wish and then deduct that amount from the rest of the sleeve.
As you can see, I didn’t do the long cuffs. If you want three-quarter length sleeves, I suggest you cast on more stitches at the cuff, because the sleeve will start further up on your arm, then knit to the length you like.
The yarn was the same that I used for Smooch — Gedifra Wellness. It was very nice to work with. For a cotton blend.
Happy Independence Day!
Lucy plans on just lying around the house to celebrate.
