So this is my third attempt on the Half Moon Bay Pullover. I need to accept that I do not like the construction technique for this. I have yet to have a comfortable rectangle, they've all skewed way beyond normal (yes, it's on the bias, but it shouldn't be this far off)

Yes, there is an errata for this pattern. There was also one the last time I attempted knitting this (and it was different than the current one... so I've used different directions each time I've knit it).

So it's off to the frog pond. I really love the yarn. The colors are stunning and I really love the feel of the fabric.

So now I'm thinking of just a basic cardigan (box stitch?) with this yarn. I am disappointed that this isn't working out, but I don't want to waste this fabulous yarn or any more time on this when I know it's just not working out....


  1. I love the yarn and the texture of the stitch -- it shows the colors off beautifully! You're right, though, that's way too much bias. I really thought *you* would be able to make it work.

    Block stitch would look excellent, but I was rather intrigued by the diagonal. How about a vandyke or ripple?

    Been frogging a lot at my house so can send very sympathetic ball re-winding thoughts your way. --Sylvia

  2. Sorry it didn't work out, but I'm sure you'll find something to show that lovely yarn off.
