I’ve made error after error (including that dropped stitch) and have wrestled with Elizabeth Zimmermann’s famously “pithy” instructions. I’ll do a longer post about those woes, but was wanting to poll the blogosphere – is there a problem with me publishing all the proportions of the seamless hybrid from Knitting Without Tears? I was thinking of just giving the numbers of stitches or rows (as a proportion of the body circumference) for each step without detailing the individual steps. The calculations will certainly help me with the next one that I do (and I’m pretty confident that there will be a next time).
As for the dropped stitch, its a pretty easy fix involving a crochet hook and a tapestry needle. Won’t be perfect from the inside, but shouldn’t be too visible from the outside.
The washed gauge swatch is slightly wider, and slightly shorter than the gauge in the sweater as knitted, so I’ll be anxiously awaiting the dried finished article to ensure that the Fireman does not have an overly snug, but extremely long jumper. There should be finished object photos this weekend.
