Wanted to share a quick project update on the Vintage Copper Cowl Neck Sweater.
I finished knitting the 1x1 ribbed sash which completed the knitting portion of the project.
Next step is 'sewing' the pieces together. Notice the crochet hook. Yes, instead of using a traditional mattress or back stitch seam I am using a single crochet stitch to 'sew' all of the seams. This is my method of choice for a light weight yarn like this Habu Kasuki Zome Silk.
I love the surged looking seam it give and since you finish the project by doing a single crochet edging around the neck line and sleeve edges it works for me.
Above is a closeup of a shoulder seam. This baby will be finished tonight and ready to wash and block tomorrow.
I am hoping to finish up the seaming and edging early enough to start my next project and share it with you in the next day or 2.
Enjoy and Knit On!
