Has anyone else noticed that everything I knit originates with Elizabeth Zimmermann?
I hadn’t noticed until discovering that I had 2 February Baby Sweaters, a February Shawl, a Tomten, and a BSJ all on the needles at the same time. And a Ganomy, and another Adventure Sweater, and another Ribwarmer, and Moccasin Socks all simmering on the brain.
Slowly, step away from the Zimmermann….
I can’t help it! There are so many possibilities in every single design. One of these FBSs for example. I wanted to make a more masculine non-fussy version for my nephew. I didn’t want to make a cardigan, but I didn’t want to rewrite the pattern to fit over a large baby head. Guess what? Those features are already there.
Unvention– Knit the yoke in garter, then lap the button band stitches and knit it in the round. Instant placket pullover!!! No number tweaking required! The pattern works exactly the same.
And if it can fit over Nikolai’s head, it can fit over anyone’s head.
