My off-white, top-down Radicchio
, although a speedy knit, won't be ready for late summer wearing this year. It will be next summer's go to piece.
The body is finished.
I ended it with the same trim as the top - 2x2 rib. Most of the trim - I worked with a slightly smaller needle - 3.75mm versus the 4.5mm used in the body. But I switched back to the 4.5 for the cast off.
The cast off was done in pattern with an extra stitch made and cast off every once in a while - A- La Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off.
No use going to all the trouble of inserting 'fit my hips' increases then having a trim too tight to meet in the middle.
Hopefully my strategy works.
But if not, it's top down. Easy to Fix. On to the sleeves.
