And #3
I am very happy with the way the sleeve turned out. I did absolutely no shaping of this sleeve. I knit it straight to the cuff on the same amount of stitches that I picked up at the top of the armhole. At the cuff I K1, K2tog all the way around and decreased the amount of 110 picked up stitches by half which left me with 55 stitches. In order to have an even number of stitches to do 2x2 ribbing for the cuff I decreased down to 54 stitches! And it fits great! So now, onto the second sleeve! :) Posted by Picasa

Very nice. It looks great! On certain fair isles I too like the look of no shaping. Especially when the shaping would interfere with the look of the patterns.

Do you use a jogless jog?

Yes I try to, but usually, the way that I switch colors allows me to pull the new color and the old color in a way that brings the previous row even to the new row. (See Meg Swansens Jogless Jog for the Dubblemosa Hat) :)

I love looking at your work. I don't remember, is this an original or can I buy this pattern somewhere? If it is an original, are you willing to share?
