I am finding it difficult to make time to knit with a busy summer! 🙂 I ran across some fabric I had knit on the standard gauge quite a while back – all tucked into a basket in my sewing room. I had started with a 2 X 2 ribbing and just made several pieces of fabric in a tuck stitch with a 2/17 yarn. I wanted to do a complete cut and sew for this hoodie so I started with a hand knit schematic and cut out the pieces to the right size. I then serged around each raw-edged piece using a 1.5 setting on the differential feed. This made the edges lay completely flat with no waviness. I sewed the garment pieces together using the sewing machine with the purl side as the public side – I really liked all that texture and hated to hide it inside. Although, I did hand mattress stitch each of the 4 places where the ribbing met to ensure it looked good. The light yarn makes a nice, lightweight summer hoodie and it was a snap to make since the knitting was all done.
