- Sewn Bind Off

* One thing I didn't mention about the sewn bind off is that all the directions I've read direct you to use 2x the circumference of the sock. I have found this is not enough, and always use at least 5x the circumference of the sock to bind off. This ensures a nice loose, open hole, which is the whole point of the bind off.

Love it!!

I've been obsessed with Bohus sweaters for awhile...most of my ancestors were from Sweden, so I feel like I owe it to them to make at least one. I actually got the Forest Darkness - Black kit for Christmas last year and am thinking about casting on when I'm done with my current project. You should make one, too!

Oh, and I just asked my Swedish colleague about the pronunciation of Bohus....it's something like "BOH-hoos" (emphasis on first syllable). He also gave me the full etymology and history of the word, which I will gladly pass on if you are interested. :)
