Following my last post, Sheryl asked what the reverse side of double knit jacquard looks like and Tom asked if I could show the cards I used to knit the norwegian inspired sweater. Well, ask and you shall receive!
Let's start with the reverse side (I used technique A, bird's eye double jacquard):
As you can see, the it's very neat and tidy. It has no long floats (in fact, it has no floats at all) and since the stitches are doubled, it makes a very warm fabric.
Now, on to the cards I used.
Now, because it's still very cold and I still feel very "nordic", let me tease you with a glimpse of what I'm working on...
I made a few mistakes (trying to go too fast) while punching it, that's why there are a few pieces of transparent tape on it. They do a perfect job at repairing dumb blunders, which is a very good thing since I'm down to my very last blank card! I must remember to order some...
P.S: These are Passap cards, so they're 40 stitches across.
