I completed the body of the Kelp sweater over the weekend. I originally went straight to an icord bind off but it just didn't look pleasing. I decided to rip out the icord bind off adding three garter stitch ribs before an icord bind off. I think it looks much better. I'm hoping blocking will tame the edging from curling.
I started the first sleeve and my oh my the progress that can be made in mere minutes on a sleeve compared to the body of the sweater. So speedy so fast so much gratification :) When I arrive at the cuff I think I'll do the same as the body edging. This sweater has been fun to design and knit, using Ann Budd's book.
If you are feeling adventurous in branching out and trying your hand at designing, all the math is complete in this book. You just do a swatch, take some measurements and choose. Easy peasy :)
I recommend for the best fit, measure a beloved sweater in your closet. If you love the fit of that garment, you can knit that specific size and be just as thrilled with a hand knit of your own creation.
