clhk2015-7 UPLANDS ARAN

My final project for the TGKA Master Hand Knitting Program is a modern Aran design with a Celtic flair. This bottom-up pullover sweater, in Sally Melville’s attractive “balance point” length, is worked flat and features horizontal braided bands around the bottom of the body and the set-in sleeves. The bands, edged in slipped stitches, are worked first then stitches picked up to continue knitting the body and sleeves. Stitches picked up around the wide portrait neck are worked with Lily Chin’s join-as-you-go technique (full instructions included) and finished with a single braid with a slipped stitch edge, framing the face. A video tutorial link is provided for the join-as-you-go cabled neck edge.
