Well, this took a little while to finish and take pics... but look what is finally off my needles and onto my body: LANESPLITTER!
November but got waylaid by a few huge projects and the holidays, I finished it while in Nevada, happily chatting away with my knitting peeps!
these directions from PaulaSulli for a seamless version. The only thing I didn't like about the design was the line made by the seam and by doing some simple trigonometry (insert evil laugh here) the seam went away!
this calculator, where the desired length (17 inches) is side A. I got 22 inches for side C which is the cast on edge. I got a gauge of 4 sts to the inch, so 4 *22=88 sts was my magic cast on number. After casting on, I worked the straight section of the pattern until the skirt was 6 inches less than my hip measurement, when I grafted I worked a garter stitch kitchener.
my project to Ravelry, take a look at the other 13,081 Lansplitter's knitters have made... it really looks good on everyone! I wore it to Knitting Etc the other day and I'm pretty sure a few other Ithaca knitters are going to be jumping on the Lanesplitter bandwagon too!
