Knit a Long Week 5

Not much sewing going on here. I haven’t turned either of my machines on for at least two weeks. I’m determined to make as much progress on this Swirl while the Knit a Long is still in full swing. I see complicated parts in my near future. 🙂

At the end of four weeks of knitting, I have finished Welt 25. This also finishes the inner collar and lapels. I’m about halfway through the fifth skein of yarn at this point.

You can see in the picture how the body narrows towards the top. That’s the inner collar and and will fold back to form the lapels. It’s all starting to make sense to me.

The next few welts will start adding stitches to form the sleeves. Scary stuff for me.

What I learned this week:

  • I can drop a stitch and recover from it with my crochet hook.
  • If I just do exactly what the instructions say (and trust), it will be okay.


  1. This looks neat. I hope you can bring it to Ships. I would love to see it. I am working on Jenna’s sweater – I started on the second sleeve yesterday. She is excited about getting it. See you soon.
