The pattern I am using came about quite accidentally, hence the name ” Accidental Cardigan”. I have been trying one pattern and it was not coming out as in the picture for some reason. I have decided to try knitting it reverse to what the pattern chart said and loved the resulting pattern :-))
I am knitting from the top seamless. The sleeves are going to be knitted later from the top. This will be a new method of knitting seamless sleeves to try :-)) Here are some pictures of my project as I was knitting it.
Right now I have a vest. I have done the panels for the front halves and I am not happy with the result. The edging curls. I have not blocked this yet, but I think it will not help. You can see from the pictures that I have knitted a little flap that is folded and sewn on the WS of the front edging to prevent it from curling and to have a nicer edge, but it did not help. Now I am considering either do this flap as wide as a whole edging or unravel the front panels edging and possible the body edging and re-knit them in Garter St. There also a question whether the edging I have now is too much and Garter St one will be a better choice since the main pattern is quite heavy. I also considering if a vest perhaps will be better then a cardi in this case. I would appreciate your suggestions :-))
