I have made another version of Vogue 1261. I should make this one my last as these oversized tops are not working for me. It did give me the chance to practise some more on my coverstitch machine, mostly by topstitching the seams.
It has taken me about 2 years to knit the scarf in these photos. I do love the colour.
I did attempt binding the neckline with the coverstitch machine, but this also did not work out for me. I did give up rather easily though, thinking that I would wait for a fabric that liked to be folded into shape. This one was sort of spongy and recalcitrant. Instead, I followed the Vogue instructions for the binding and topstitched the result, trimming back the excess.
