WIP Wednesday: Meghan's Kuffel Update (Social Distancing, Day ???)

Kuffel by Alexis Winslow

Turns out I've been preparing for social distancing my entire life. I'm an introvert with extrovert capabilities, but staying home for weeks with my knitting, Netflix, and a list of podcasts hasn't been unmanageable...so far. My new WIP, Kuffel by Alexis Winslow, is growing exponentially after my first week of doing little else but knit.

Truth be told, I had an entirely different post written just a few days ago, but I've made so much progress between now and then that I had to update from a mere yoke update to a finished body post! 

My WIP Kuffel

First, and most importantly, I've been listening to Binge Mode: Harry Potter and now I'm re-listening to the entire Harry Potter series on Audible while I work on my WIP Kuffel. I've found that turning off the news and social media and delighting in my favorite book series of all time is exactly what I need right now. What are you listening to/reading right now while knitting? 

Modification Updates

The biggest modifications I've made so far are to the neckband and hem of my pullover.

Although it's absolutely fine to start Kuffel with the tubular cast on and work from the neck ribbing down. I know that I need an extra bit of stability in my neckbands to keep them from stretching out over time.

Neckband ribbing in progress after picking up stitches.

Using the largest needle, the long-tail cast on, I cast-on the amount of stitches needed after the tubular cast on is worked (for me that was 144 sts). After casting-on, I started working the instructions for the yoke just after the neck ribbing.

Let me tell you, the neck opening looked HUGE, so don't be alarmed if you're attempting the same technique. After I went back with my ribbing needle, picked up 144 sts, worked the 1x1 ribbing, and used the tubular bind off to finish the collar, it now measures exactly what the the schematics indicate for the 58" [147 cm] finished chest. Woohoo! 

Finished neckband using the tubular bind off!

For the hemline, I decided early on I'd like to make this a high/low hemline situation. Although I usually go for long sweaters with cowl necks, I also like a wide crew neck with a hemline that works well for my body. This usually means modifications as my "natural waistline" is the widest part of my body. It's really not my favorite look to have a sweater end smack on my widest asset, so going through some simple modifications to make a great design work for me is totally worth it! 

Back of my WIP Kuffel with short rows at the hem! 

After finishing the final colorwork repeat, I worked in my MC for 3" [7.5 cm], then using German Short Rows, I added 9 sets of short rows to the lower body of the sweater before I started working the ribbing. It added 3" [7.5 cm] to the back of my sweater and created a lovely swoop to the sides and back! I think it looks pretty great with the yoke short-rows, adding to the visual effect of spacing on the back verses the front. 

So far, I'm incredibly pleased with my Kuffel WIP, including my color choices. It's the first time I've had the opportunity to work with Forge in Charcoal, and let me be the first to say it's SO SOFT. The blend of the black merino and gray Corriedale has unified into a magically soft, very wearable color. I recommend getting your hands on this color for a super soft and snuggly sweater. 

Until next time, I'll be working on my sleeves and blocking this baby! Stay tuned for a FO next week!

Stay healthy and happy out there, friends. ❤️

Love, 
Meghan

    DO YOU LOST YOUR CRYPTO? YOU WANT TO RECOVERY YOUR STOLEN BTC,USDT,ETH ? ghostchampionwizard @ gmail dot com

    Losing one’s Crypto currency can be a devastating thing to experience, the
    fact that it is almost impossible to recover a Stolen or lost Crypto coin
    hurts more than anything. When a person gets scammed of their money while
    investing in a crypto currency platform the only thing they can think of is
    how to report the company and get back their money. Most victims of the
    scam contact their wallet account provider, their bank or the law
    enforcement, a few end up hiring a lawyer to sue the company but after all
    these stress they still cant get their money back. Please everyone should
    be careful where they invest their money. Cryptocurrency has made many rich
    and at the same time made so many broke and desperate. Few weeks ago I was
    referred to Wizard Ghost Champion Recovery and I was able to get back all
    my USDT coins that were Stolen through their services. If you want to
    recover your cryptocurrency that was stolen or lost I recommend that Wizard
    Funds Recovery are reliable and trustworthy. You can also contact them via

    Hello everyone i’m Cliff by name

    Prevention is always better than cure, so it’s crucial to implement secure wallet and storage practices to minimize the risk of losing your Bitcoin. Use reputable wallets and ensure they have robust security features in place. Opt for hardware wallets or cold storage options for an extra layer of protection. By following these best practices, you can significantly reduce the chances of experiencing the gut-wrenching feeling of lost Bitcoin. Security and confidentiality are critical when handling delicate issues such as misplaced Bitcoin. Cliff Meuli Web Recovery is aware of this and places a high priority on safeguarding your valuables and personal data. They protect your data during the recovery process by using cutting-edge security methods. You may be confident that your Bitcoin is in good hands because of its dedication to upholding the strictest security and confidentiality standards. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a simple yet effective way to bolster the security of your Bitcoin accounts. By enabling 2FA, you add an extra layer of protection that requires a second verification step, such as a unique code sent to your mobile device, in addition to your password. This barrier makes it much harder for hackers to gain unauthorized access to your accounts and helps ensure the safety of your precious Bitcoin. Backing up your Bitcoin wallet and private keys may seem like a mundane task, but it can be a lifesaver in case of loss or theft. Make it a habit to regularly back up your wallet onto an external hard drive, USB, or even a piece of paper and store it securely in a separate physical location. By doing so, you’ll have a fail-safe option to restore your lost Bitcoin and avoid the heartache that comes with irreversible loss. But In the case of loss, please ensure to contact Cliff for help.email smartlucasrecovery@gmail.com
