Ravi Junior

After a couple minor setbacks I just released another project from the "almost finished" pile.  I don't know how it happens that some projects linger in this state of limbo.  They are finished except for . . . a bit of seaming, weaving in ends, blocking.  So close, yet not quite ready for action.

Ravi Junior, complete with buttons.  This little cardigan features garter stitch with a bit of lace.  The yoke is worked from side to side.  Then stitches are picked up along the bottom of the yoke for the body of the sweater.  

Short rows create a rounded shirttail hem.  The neck, cuffs and sweater edges are all finished with I-cord.

I had a couple of detours with this project.  I knit both sleeves twice to clean up the underarm edge.  Then on the final I-cord sprint around the sweater, I grabbed the wrong needle size and didn't realize it until I was halfway to the finish line.  Even with those bumps along the way, this was a quick knit with interesting details to keep the project moving along.

The yarn is a sport weight superwash Blue Faced Leicester base that I brought in just for this project. 

Ravi Junior Kits will be available this fall in several colors.
