I recently moved on to the sleeves of my Thunderbird WCC for the knitalong and finished in time to block the cardigan and let it dry over the weekend! Here it is before it's bath...
Working Sleeves Inside Out
If you've ever worked stranded colourwork on a small(ish) circumference like a sock or a sleeve, you might have found your fabric had very little give – try flipping your work inside out so that the strands/floats are carried on the outside – it makes a huge difference!
Working this way doesn't change anything except your perspective (your working needle is now in the back instead of the front) — you don't have to purl or change the way you follow the charts! Everything remains the same. It's difficult to visualize with just a photo — this video was shared in our knitalong group and is an excellent demonstration of the technique!
I hope you find this tip useful! Do you have any tips or tricks you've picked up while learning to work with colour?
