- Lovely sweater, Interesting construction Review by SheriO
Not quite finished with my sweater, but the construction is interesting and somewhat confusing.
I wonder why some of the parts are done as they are. It seems it would be easier to use a different type of cast on that would make it easier to pick out the stitches later. Rather than binding off some stitches on the lace square, why not leave them all live to pick up as you add the sides and not have to stitch the back sides closed.
IF I made this again, I would try to figure out how to use a different provisional cast on that would make it easier to pick out those stitches.
The designer shows drawings of different options for wearing the sweater, but gives no instruction on how to do them. I think it would help to see at least one picture of the pinned out sweater so you know if you are putting the parts together correctly.
