What, this old thing? Yeah, I totally finished it.
The vital stats, for those who missed them:
This project is a reknit of the Salina sweater which I knit a few years ago.
I ripped out the whole sweater reknit it - not only at a smaller size, but also with major modifications.
Shaping: I am using the gauge and body shaping of Tangled Yoke.
Styling: I am using Salina’s styling at the collar, hem, and sleeves with some modifications.
*Moss st 26 stitches on either side of the neck placket. (To balance out being a larger size and a smaller gauge.)
*Three-needle bind off at shoulders. (Left all the stitches live save the middle/neck set.)
*Six short-rows at the back neck to help the collar roll over.
*Sleeves are knit from the top down, as per instructions in Wendy Bernard’s Custom Knits
*Sleeves are knit to full length
*Cuffs are knit as part of sleeve and not done separately. Cuffs do not fold over.
