While still working on my mom's bedjacket, which freaks me out because it's plain stockinette stitch throughout, I relaxed with something cable-ish:
It's a model from the current "Junghans-Wolle" catalogue. Every year they provide a pattern booklet, containing all models shown in their yarn catalogue.
I did not use the original yarn, but a cheaper one - a very fine and heavenly soft merino I had at hand.
The cablework is only on the front, the backside is knit in a plain and very stretchy 2x2 rib.
The chart for the cables contained some errors, so I ended up knitting it just the way I thought it was right, and I think the outcome is nice ^-^
Unlike suggested in the pattern this bandeau top was knit completely in the round instead of working a sepereate front- and backside.
At this point I can literally see the jaws of all "real" knitters out there drop. Yes, I know what you think. And I tried to avoid getting a longer backside by using shortened rows, but it still puckers when I'm wearing it. Not much, but it somehow disturbs me. Any suggestions what I can do? A sewn horizontal dart is not the solution... I tried this already.
This leads me to a question I wanted to ask anyway: What do knitters do if the finished piece doesn't fit like wanted, if there's a tiny little pucker somewhere it doesn't belong? Rip it all? Or is there a kind of "emergency 101"?
Oh, it's so easy to adjust sewn things - even after finishing. But knits? ...
Hope you have a nice, puckerless sunday!
