I’m knitting Hana Hou and I’m running out of yarn. All that’s left to knit are the sleeves and I have two partial balls left. I need advice.
I’m definitely doing long sleeves. I found some natural coloured Sportweight yarn to add in. As I see it I have two options. Both involve keeping the textured cuffs in the grey. But should the rest of the grey go on the bottom or the top?
I’ve measured the swatch as a rough stand in for the cuff, and one of my partial balls is exactly the same as that amount doubled, so that seems clear.
As you can see in the picture, I’ve sketched out a rough plan of the two options. In both options, I knit both sleeves at the same time, using different ends of the ball. I’m not sure, however, how much length I’m going to get from 35g.
Be aware that I’m planning on doing some geometric embroidery in white to bring the colour into the main part of the sweater and look more integrated.
1) white at the top, all the grey at the bottom?
2) grey cuff, white middle, grey sleeve caps?
