Pendulum

TBQH, I’m very disappointed with the bind-off. I tried a stretchy one for a few stitched, didn’t like the look of it, and redid with my regular bind-off held loosely. It was too tight after blocking. 🙁

I may seriously unravel the bind-off and try again?

I unraveled the bind-off (undoing the woven-in edge was kind of a nightmare) and redid it with a stretchier technique (k2tog style) with a #8 needle in the contrast color. (Didn’t have enough of the MC.) I really like both the feel of the stretchier edge, nicer to wear, and the almost eyelet-like look with the contrasting color. MUCH BETTER.

I left the yarn tails dangling from the tentacles, which makes for a nice visual. Not including those danglies, it’s about 6.5” long, 4” in diameter depending how you squish the bell.
