Ribwarmer Done!

Thanks to knitorious for letting me know that I (sound of hand repeatedly slapping forehead) orginally *slap* sewed *slap* the fronts together *slap* instead of the back, hence the dreaded "pooching".
I love it; just the thing for throwing on over pjs or under a coat. Made from 100% aran weight wool, edged in Cascade 220 black -- two rows of 3 stitch I-Cord. I may sew on a button with a loop, or a pewter clasp, or just leave it as is. And I'd definitely make one again.


  • Looks fabulous. So glad you figured out the reason for the pooching and were able to fix it!

  • You did a lovely job!! I have this on my list of 2-do projects and am really looking forward to doing it. Any hints/tips?

  • It's in "Knitting Workshop", but also available (slightly modified I understand)from Schoolhouse Press individually as an issue of "Spun Out." Only tips are -- don't sew it together backwards! hee hee.

    Actually, I like longer vests, so I might add a few rows before shaping next time, but it was a breeze to knit. A friend in my knitting group is doing one in mauve; I can't wait to see it.
