Today (finally! the technical issues and building construction have been a thorn in my side - I’m so sorry!) we are talking about splitting the sleeves off from the body plus a clever use of the provisional caston *in the middle of the round*. You will love how this simple technique makes finishing your sweaters just a matter of weaving in some ends.

Yarn info:

-Biches et Buches Le Petit Lambswool https://www.bichesetbuches.com/ - the original Enwreathed Pullover and Cowl were knit in the MC: Bleu Noir Foncé (dark blue black) and CC: Gris Clair (light grey)

-Manos del Uruguay https://www.manosyarns.com/ - Kathleen will be using Allegria in Euphoria for her CC on The Heart Wants Pullover

-Swans Island Company https://swansislandcompany.com/ - Kathleen will be using Swans Island Pure Blends Fingering in Oatmeal, which has been discontinued, but Swans Island Sterling Fingering is a great substitute with the same 85% Merino/15% Alpaca fiber content

Today I’m sharing some favorite colorwork techniques (two-handed knitting, anyone?) plus the way I do provisional castons. If  crocheting a chain takes you out of your comfort zone, my provisional two-tail long-tail cast-on might just do the trick for you.

 

And one gentle reminder: YOU are the boss of your knitting.
