My knitting secret
Here's the elephant patch for the back of my first Phildar baby sweater. And here's my secret. I'm really bad at intarsia. I can just never make it look completely even. I've practiced and practiced to no avail. At least you can tell it's an elephant, right?
This is also the part of the sweater where I'm really wishing that I understood the Dutch pattern directions better. I know I knit the patch right, starting and finishing with a different color. I'm pretty sure that part is taken out and the live stitches are somehow sewed onto the jacket. It's that somehow part that's confusing. I'm planning on spending some time on babelfish this week to figure out how in the heck Phildar's designers attach this!
