getting a fair isle pattern to line up across a three needle bind off

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

fair isle three needle bind off

It turns out that transforming a sweater into a pillow might not be the most seamless of transformations.

My original plan with this piece of fabric was to turn it into a steeked cardigan with a fair amount of shaping, so I’ve had to do a bit of fudging to get the pattern to line up (semi)seamlessly across the three-needle bind off.

After a bit of ripping out and reknitting it looks pretty good, so I’m going to leave it, weave in a ton of ends, and find some stuffing.


(Shawl Geometry Book 3 edits continue, and I have nothing interesting to say about them.)
