I think what we mean when we’re talking about full fashioning with hand knits is strategically using mirrored increases and decreases. These are also called fashion marks and when mirrored, they make clean lines, providing a more polished look for our knitting, making it look more professional. A plain basic pattern like the little basic cardi for this course project gives you an opportunity to customize it to your aesthetic and choose details that are meaningful to you and that sort of make the project sing for you.
