Topic: stranded knitting
So, here is the unblocked version of my second edge finish treatment. This is what came to the first Faroe Retreat with me while I mulled over if I liked the two-tone front. I do. So, I have decided to finish this off and block it.
The first finish was all in charcoal, was double stranded and had standard one-row buttonholes in a garter stitch background. It was too dark and too massive for the eye. So I reknit the right buttonband in light gray and added hidden I-cord buttonholes, which caused a scallop look when buttoned. This necessitated a wider LEFT band, so I took off the original one, reduced the thickness and increased the width.
I think it's a keeper.
