Making several modifications:

  • Stockinette side is right side
  • Added striping (to use two colors from stash)
  • No pockets
  • Green yarn is sport weight, tan is fingering

I’m now at the point where the collar band has short rows. That 1x1 rib has gotten to the boring point, so this is a nice change! (I was surprised to find the short rows at the bottoms of the band and not at the collar. I think the collar would be nice with some short rows to make it higher in back, but I didn’t make that mod.) I hope I can finish the band before running out of yarn. I think I will need to buy another ball of Chickadee to finish the sleeves. P.S. I did need to buy more Chickadee. Color was almost identical, whew! Dodged a bullet there!. I bought two balls to be sure, but I only needed a part of one.


One sleeve finished. Except, the tubular bind-off seems sloppy and flares out. I think I need to go down a needle size or two for the cashmere. The sport weight Chickadee looks so nice in the tubular bind off. The cashmere is fingering weight so maybe it will look better with a few rows of smaller gauge before the tubular bind off.

Started the second sleeve and decided to use no stripes because I have enough yarn (I think) to do the whole sleeve in cashmere. I really want to use as much of the cashmere as possible. :-)


Didn’t like the flare of the first cuff so I did the second one by switching to a smaller needle (one size down) for the last about half inch, the set up rows and the bind off. Much better! Also, since I still had plenty of cashmere I made the ribbed cuff about 5” long so it folded back nicely to make a 2.5” cuff. So, then I went back to the first cuff, took out the bind off, lengthened it, and then did the same thing with the last half inch. They turned out beautifully! AND, best of all--only 3 g of cashmere left. rolling_on_the_floor_laughing
