I know, I’m a knitter, don’t I know wool felts? Last year I bought a sweater I really liked. It was a lovely soft red wool with cables and 3/4 dolmen sleeves. Comfy and warm, one of my favourites.
I put it in the washer. It was an accident, I swear. I know better.
But hopefully I will again. I’m not entirely sure it will turn out and I’ve never knit a dolman sweater before. I don’t have a pattern. I have an idea and a hope, really.
Although there’s only one half done sleeve here, I’m actually on sleeve 3 now, and there will probably be a 4. I’m not happy with the neckline (again, one sleeve has already been ripped), so I started the other sleeve since taking the photo, and I like it better. Which means I’ll have to redo the first one. Sigh.
But really, I’m posting here for a bit of help. Do I or do I not cable the back of the sweater? Should I cable the sleeves even? What would you do from here?
