If you remember Sleeve Island and Interior Finishes, I had the wrong ratio on my pick up for the cocoon collar. Christine Guest recommended I use the trim as a ruler. How’d that work out?
Not only did it work out perfectly, but it also made for a much easier to write pick up ratio 😉. Thanks, Christine!
Now to the knitty gritty 😉.
The first trial used the already knit hem to see how much I was short by bunching up the excess.
The second trial unraveled more from the body to see just how much I should be using.
Both tests gave the same result of how much I was short.
A lot of frogging and reknitting (1.5 skeins) later…
No bunching! It lays beautifully on the body, too, if I do say so myself.
Meanwhile in Maine…
The trim is going up in Maine as well! Interior crown and exterior siding.
The final verdict on “did I calculate correctly” from Pattern Placement and Siding remains to be seen – knitting needles crossed! The 30-day to move start clock is getting closer 😊.
