Ravelympics / Knitting Olympics Day 6

The first sleeve is finished. I had intended to do a rolled cuff – I love the look of them on little kid’s clothing – but opted for a 1 x 1 rib to better fit in with the other stitch patterns e.g. the single knit stitch on both sides of the central Rope cable and the garter stitch hem (which is just cut off at the bottom of the pic).

The ends of the central rope panel are on stitch holders and will be picked up when the neck band is knit.

I’m about half-way to the sleeve shaping on the second half, so in very good shape to finish by the closing ceremonies.
