The really observant knitter will see that I have the sleeve on upside-down. This is because my cast-on edge is looser than my cast-off edge.

This week, I chat with Kristin Nicholas and share a pattern for a super-simple knit, the Left Out of Phase Coffee Sleeve.

Left Out of Phase Coffee Sleeve

If this pattern had one more stitch, the purl stitches for each round would fall into line with each other. They would be "in phase", as it were. Instead, they are out of phase and slant up and to the left. So, they are "left" out of phase.

Errata: I forgot to tell you to join the work and knit in the round! Please so do. Use double-point needles or whatever kind you prefer for working a small circumference.


Kristin and I chatted about sheep breeds, raising sheep, knitting, and escaping to a farm, among other things. I hope you enjoy it!
