wip wednesday: shawl collar baby sweater

Compared to last week, a ton of progress has happened on the shawl collar baby sweater! I've finished the back, front, and the collar. That's the first sleeve in progress. I'm a little uncertain on the collar, though. I didn't follow the pattern instructions, which called for knitting the collar separate and seaming it on (seaming? ugh!). So I picked up stitches instead ... but I didn't pick up stitches in a way that will let me truly replicate the shawl collar as designed ... instead of being completed sewn down, it'll flop open as seen above. I'm not fully sure I like that. My plan is to finish the sleeves and try it on baby boy before I frog anything--it's totally possible I will completely love this look. I'm just not 100% sold on it yet. What do you think?

  1. I like it - it's like a polo shirt collar... in fact had you not mentioned it I would never have known :)
