slope

Wednesday, July 14, 2021

Well, I finished this knit at the end of June and kept forgetting to talk about it.  Not sure why, as it has been on rotation in my wardrobe since then!  I've worn it with these black joggers, and I've worn it with both white and blue jeans.  Also, under a jean jacket.  

 
It truly has been a great layering piece.  
The yarn was a bit thin.  As my friend Linda put it, it was like working with dental floss.  I had a few places where the yarn had twigs or something stuck to it. (Ha.  Hence the name "twig".)  I noticed it after I knit it and tried to pull them out.  That did not go well.  I decided to leave it instead of ripping it out.  It doesn't bother me now.  

 Pattern:  Slope by Shibui Knits
Yarn:   4 skeins Shibui Twig in Caffeine 
Needle:  US 3
Size:  S
Start date:  6.3.21
Finish date:  6.27.21
Modifications:  Did not do the German Cast on.  I was a bit too impatient for that.  I also shortened my high low effect that the pattern called for.  To do so, I did my wrap and turns with 5 stitches left before the wrap instead of the 3 stitches the pattern calls for.   The pattern calls for a cropped version and a long version.  This is right in between both.  In doing so, I started my decreases at 1.5" then decreased every 12th round.
