Nachtfalter KAL Week 6: Finish Your Sweater!

Everyone is slowly inching toward the finishing line…

This Week’s Nachtfalter Goal: Finish the back, seam up the sides and shoulders, weave in all the ends and FINISH your sweater!

Just like Week 4, finish the back of the sweater. Then seam up the sides of your sweater, and use 3-needle bind off to finish the shoulder seams. There’s been some talk in the forum about how to seam the sides, so I worked ahead so I could get some pictures of my finished seams:

Nachtfalter Crochet Seam

I used a single crochet to join my seams, so it would nicely match the 3-needle bind-off at the shoulders. I did one single crochet for every row of knitting, using the tiniest crochet hook I own.

Underside of Nachtfalter Crochet Seam

I think it turned out nice and neat! You could also use a whipstitch or a backstitch to seam the sides.

Once you’ve finished, post a photo of your sweater in the Finished Nachtfalters forum. If you post your picture by the 22nd (a whole two weeks to finish!), you’ll be entered to win one of our fabulous prizes!

Happy Knitting!
