Love Askew

I haven't finished (heck, haven't started) weaving in the ends of my first Askew, and already I'm working on my second one. Here's the first:

Askew from Knitty

I made the back the same as the front, laced up the sides instead of seaming (gods, how I hate seaming), and crocheted straps. Once I weave in the ends, I'll take pics to show y'all how well it fits. I love it!

I love it so much that this happened:

Askew from Knitty

Another recycled sweater, another pattern modification, and another excuse to use my precious ebony needles. Have I mentioned how much I hate seaming? This version of Askew is going to be seam-free. I cast on twice the number of stitches called for in the pattern, with a marker at the halfway point so I remember where to decrease.

Cheryl? Thank you. This is a great pattern. It's quick, simple, fun, and very, very cute. :)

Wow...and wow! Looks so wonderful and cool. Can't wait to see it modeled. More than seems, I very much dislike weaving in the ends...looks like you do too!

Very, very cute, indeed! Nice job!

I also hate seaming...there is many an unfinished project in my home that needs just one or two seams. Sad, really...
