This is a warning in case any other readers of Vibeke Lind’s Knitting in the Nordic Tradition are passing by. This is a Danish book that has been translated into English by Annette Allen Jensen and of which I managed to secure a second-hand copy.
It has a lot of useful material, and it was probably my fault that I was misled by this diagram and photo – I thought they referred to the same thing:
I did think 15 centimetres was too long, but I didn’t realize till after I’d finished that the cuff is supposed to be turned up twice. I was relying on the photo, in which you can see the black ribbing at the bottom and the black edge at the top of the cuff. (My casting off is a bit dodgy too).
Ah well. Anyone with a long small head need one of these?
I had been practising knitting with one colour held the English way and the other the Continental way, just in case I ever get round to a jacket.
