Boatneck Sweater

Boatneck Sweater

This is a boatneck that A chose from "Knitting Simple Sweaters From Luxurious Yarn," by Marilyn Cohen. I knit it in Goa. I let A decide how wide she wanted the neck opening to be and I knitted the shoulder seams with a three-needle bind off. She then decided that the neck was too wide, so I did a little sewing. Then she wasn't happy with how broad her shoulders looked, so I'm in the process of un-sewing. I think there was some added bulk from the alteration and I hope it will look better when that's taken care of. It just may be the drop shoulder, though, and in that case, A said that with the wider neck, she'll just wear it off one shoulder -- '80s style!
