Aran FLAK - one sleeve finished


One sleeve is finished thanks to instructions on the Magic Loop method. I wanted to finish the cuffs in twisted rib, but my instructions weren’t for dpns or circular needles so I wound up only twisting the knit stitches on the outside when I think the purl ones would have been twisted if one knit flat. Then I tried the invisible bind off, and just couldn’t follow it - - even with two different sets of instructions. I wound up using the single crochet, but if it bothers me enough, it wouldn’t be a big problem to reknit the ribbing once I have the invisible bind off figured out. Janet Szabo’s Aran FLAK is a terrific learning experience and a lot of fun!
