a combination of handknit and machine knitting
My friend at yarn-way gifted me with two skeins of this gorgeous bulky yarn, in my favorite sky blue color: at first I thought I could make a hat and and a cowl, but it's so soft and pretty it would be a waste for "just" accessories.
So.... I made the most of the two skeins.
|the bottom edge is knitted in tubular, without seams at the sides, and the front and back of the sweater have been "sandwiched" in hand-sewn with back-stitch|
I hand-knitted the front trying to come up with a shape that would need the least amount of yarn: so here the asymmetric hem, and the raglan sleeves.
For the back and sleeves I used my knitting machine a 2/14 merino/cashmere blend, in heather grey, knitted on tension 3.** - gauge 50 st x 50 r = 12.7cm x 9 cm.
The back is knitted casting on on waste yarn, knitted 3 rows and then placed the needles in position E and the carriage on H to knit short rows to match the asymmetry of the front.
here are my notes:
