Here is the front of d’Azur:
I am a few rows away from doing the front neck shaping, so you can tune in tomorrow to see how the completed front looks.
There was a suggestion that I could steek the front neck to make the striping sequence match on each side. Yes, I could. But I won’t.
This is a fairly heavy cotton and in my opinion is not the type of yarn that really calls out for a steek. Number one, it would add a fair amount of bulk to the inside of the neck and even trimmed, would make the neckline look lumpy. Number two, the steek would have to be carefully stitched to keep it from unravelling, and that just sounds like too much work to me.
So we’ll see how the front ends up tomorrow. Such excitement.
