Because I wanted a bottom hem to match the finishing on the neckline and wrists, and because the finish is i cord which is perpendicular to the rest of the stitches, row gauge is a problem. And I did not make an allowance for it.
It blouses. It blouses and poufs even with one measly inch of knitting. Imagine this once 6 inches is knit, once the body is knit. Imagine that sad little too short row of i cord pulling everything in right where it absolutely must flow and drape.
Yeah. You know what I am doing this morning. Ripping back. We will see about restarting. I might just work on a different sweater.
It sure was a nice i cord. I will always have that.
