Hybrid Fix Up

I sat down last night with the seamless hybrid #2 and ripped out the bottom hem and added about two inches length to it.  I knit a few rounds just regular stocking stitch with 4 mm needles, then I dropped down to the 3.5 mm and did a 3×1 rib for about 1.5″.  It looked good, but I had to wait until this afternoon for the big fella to try it on.

I think someone who is more long and lean could pull off the folded hem/straight body line.  I suppose a person could engineer a more shaped ETA:  sweater body using short rows, etc. but I didn’t want to put that much energy into this project!

So we are both pleased with the revised version and I’m sure it will get a lot of wear.  Now to finish those socks!
