i was back on the drawing board this morning trying to sketch up another one of my lame brain ideas when i found these. they are dated november 2006. i like how the giants initials are slapped on. front+center.
i remember trying to draw just enough to show how i had improvedbastardized zimmermann's shoulder shaping formulas.
i came up with these changes only after i had followed zimmermann's directions word for word. i have to know what i'm doing before i can mess it up.
the last sketch is very close to how i knit the hodge podge. i divided the decreases into several more tiers than the original three. more tiers, less puckering. the radial look of the stacked decreases isn't bad looking either.
the only other shoulder shaping i learned from zimmermann is the raglan. i use it more often for hats than for sweaters. fitted raglan sleeves make me look like a football player, meaty calves and all.
