Saturday night’s alright for swatching

Saturday night’s alright for swatching

Well, I did the testing on Friday but that doesn’t fit in to an Elton John song title!

Green stitch marker is 3.25 mm and pink is 3.5 mm

Being the very good and diligent knitter I am (stop laughing) I always do a tension square (no, seriously, stop laughing).
Because the finished garment is worked in the round, I made a mock-in-the-round swatch.

All you do is, having finished a round, push the work along a circular or double pointed needle from left to right and strand the yarn across the back of the work.
No purling!

All that remains is to let the work dry and then measure it.
Oh, and cast on the project and finish it!
