The first time my granddaughter took her in the tub for a dive she thought she broke it. "Oh No, her arm fell off Nannee!" said she. I told her not to worry, it fell off years ago. She cheered "Well, that's OK! We'll pretend she broke it diving." I showed her how to pop it back in the socket. Skipper hasn't missed a single tub time.
I kept stitches live on either side and knit up the middle front. I later removed the bind off on the front section to keep these stitches live too.
After knitting the sides for the back I slipped all stitches onto one dbl pointed needle. The needle holds the front and back stitches "live."
I purled one row. This connected the shoulders and secured the armholes! Next row is a knit row: bind off snug.
The bind off finished the neckline. Next time I will knit a few extra rows before binding off to create a rolled collar. I sewed two snaps on the back.
Skipper's Simple Sweater Tee and Simple Skirt (not blocked).
Simple Sweater Top
- Knit flat
- No seams
- Automatic armholes
- Bind off neckline finish
- Two large snaps at back for easy dressing
I took notes and will improve Skipper's Simple Sweater Tee. I think it is too long and needs some shape with a nicer neckline.
...Happy Trails......gotta get back to the show...
