|This is the LEFT side of the sweater. It's a mirror pattern. The theory is that the right side will look exactly the same, only in reverse.|
Of course, this side is not finished, there's a decreasing section that's set to start in about an inch and a half.
In case you need a refresher, here's the only pic of the sweater I can find:
It appears that this thing is knit on the bias. Ok, ok, I suspect that's impossible. What I really mean is that it will be seamed so that the final garment falls on the bias.
In truth, it's looking less weird at this point than it has done since I began this endless swatch of stockinette. Now that I've achieved full width at the top (the "sleeve" area), I can almost envision how it will be seamed at the centre back and then under the arms/ at the side.
I still have concerns about the sizing. But really, maybe this is one of those projects you need to finish (at least one side) before you have any sense of what will come next?
Or y'all could enlighten me.
Note: If you have serious concerns that this is never going to be a sweater, feel free to voice them.
Oh, and one final pic to show the lovely colour:
|Keep in mind that this is not blocked, so the stitch is not as even as it will look when all is done.|
