A technique question February 10, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 9:59 pm

I just posted this on the Ravelry Central Park Hoodie KAL board…

I am knitting the smallest size for my daughter and it seems a bit
small. I thought I would make the button band wider. However, I don’t
really like all of that extra width on the hood. Couldn’t I just start
a new ball of yarn and knit the button band up to the hood and then
continue on the other side with the original ball of yarn  and then when it is wide enough cast off the
whole thing using one yarn? Am I crazy with this idea?

I swear I have done something similar to this on another project…just can’t think what.

    That makes perfect sense to me.

    I think that would work. I knit this sweater for Hannah and it looked really small to me when I was doing it but it wound up fitting her perfectly.

    I’m up to the hood on the CPH – your idea sounds like it will work.
