Who remembers this:
I wanted to gather and double the fabric at the back, to keep my back warm.
I got kinda stuck.
The unfinished creation remained on the dress form for many a month. The fabric was proving too soft for the effect I wanted, so it was a case of getting back to the drawing board once more.
I unpicked my surface stitches until I was back to the knitted fabric. Turning it around so that the pattern was vertical, I doubled it and remade the basic shape once more. The front is now similar, but the back has lost all the extra bulk.
I extended the sleeves while I was in sick-bay, ripping out the the same piece three times!
Now it looks like this:
I am not sure about the double buttons… I may remove one and make a finer loop. I still have plenty of yarn
Now I wonder what I can make with that?
