Announcing my first-ever KAL - knit-along, that is. I'm finally over my grief, thanks to finding five beautiful skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Purewash DK in stunning shades of blue, teal and violet, and I'm ready to face down recreating my lost Galore sweater. And I'm hoping you'll want to knit along with me!
Here are few thoughts on ways to modify your Galore sweater.
Drop the Neckline
The neckline as written is quite high - I find it comfortable to wear but I know some people prefer not to have something right up against their neck. To drop the neckline down, skip the first increase by casting on the number of stitches listed after that first increase.
I was a teaching a knitting class last month and while we were working away on some short rows, one of the women in class asked me what inspires my designs. Truthfully, when I started submitting designs to magazines years ago, I was trying to come up with things I hadn't seen before.
