I’m using Melissa Leapman’s excellent book, 6,000+ Pullover Possibilities, to design a tunic for myself. It will have shaping, inset bell sleeves, and a slit neckline. I’m using a 100% superwash DK wool, and I know it will grow over time.
I love knitting in the round because I’m not a fan of seaming.
But I’m also wondering if it’s worth knitting this project flat to lend some stability to it.
Pros: It’s faster to knit in the round
Millions of our Nordic friends can’t be wrong in knitting everything in the round!
Cons: Will it be stable enough?
Superwash. Ugh. I know it’s going to grow and lose it’s shape.
