a sleeve and a little bit more
I’ve finally started the Husband’s sweater. I cast on a sleeve Saturday and I already have one finished. I’ve knit so many socks and small gauge projects in the last few months that I forgot how fast bigger needles can be. Size 8s feel like logs, but the knitting goes like lightning.
I’ve never used a provisional cast on, but I found a great video
showing exactly how to do it. I’ve tried the one on Knitting Help before, but the last flick of her wrist is too fast to see which side she brings the yarn up. No great loss, because this provisional crochet cast-on alternative was kind of fun. A little awkward to get started, but that’s because I’m no pro with a crochet hook. I must have done it right, because that jumble of red waste yarn, charcoal and green have become a very respectable hemmed cuff.
