Cuff Conclusion

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Yesterday TC tried on the sleeve and cuff options. Her right sleeve is the second option and the left is the first option I finished.

The right sleeve is knit to 13 inches and then there is a 6 inch ribbed cuff with the thumbhole opening from 16 to 17.5 inches. The total length of the sleeve is 19 inches from the underarm. The thumbhole placement is at a slightly different point on the round.

The left sleeve is knit to 11 inches and then there is a 7 inch ribbed cuff with the thumbhole opening from 16 to 17 inches. The total length of the sleeve is 18 inches from the underarm.

My overall assessment is that the right sleeve or the second try is the one I am sticking with so I’ve already ripped back the left sleeve. I love the fact that the top down style of sweater knitting allows for easy adjustment of the sleeves and the body length and edgings.

TC liked both sleeves and didn’t seem to mind either option.

I love the turned up cuff look as well. The cuff could even be turned up again for more of a 3/4 length sleeve.

This is the inside of the sweater. I don’t know why but I have always loved the purl side of stripes. I guess it’s that little blip of color that shows up on the round when you are changing colors.

Here is the purl side view with all of the ends woven in and trimmed. I’ll be back soon with the hood and the finished sleeves.

I hope you are all hanging in there! I’m starting to see some finished raglans popping up on Ravelry so that is fun. It’s good to see the success.

    I love that cuff! I’ve been wanting to do one like that for awhile.

    BTW, can you tell me where I might be able to find bins like those I can see in the background holding yarn?

    Looks gorgeous! I knit my daughter a sweater with thumbholes like that and she loved it. It looks beautiful on TC, too.
