My second Old Town; the first one did indeed become a favorite.


Sleeves: 2 at a time, in the round. Meant to pick up 81st on each sleeve, but my stitch count just before ribbing tells me I picked up an extra on one or forgot a decrease. In other sleeve news, I misread the instructions and knit 5.25” before beginning the decreases, which in the end means that I did 13 decreases and sleeves are about 16.5” long without ribbing.


Finished. It’s definitely jacket length; I ended with ~ 320 OTN. Modifications:

  • 2.5” of ribbing instead of 6 rows. I continued the increases through the ribbing rows.

  • I finished the collar hem with 6 rows of garter stitch to give it some stability and prevent it from curling or doing wonky things.

  • I bound off the sleeves & the hem using tubular bind off/grafted bind off/kitchener stitch bind off. Looks fab!
