That is a very nice sweater, Simon! I like that a lot. Now, what exactly is a "welt" as it pertains to a sweater?




A 'welt' is another name for a band of ribbing - only occuring at the beginning, not anywhere else - in the UK.

It is a terrific sweater.  Simon, I hope you are going to submit some of your sweater designs to  What did you use to make it?  I love the way the defininition of texture came out.  Way to go.

Ah, thanks! In the U.S., I often hear the welt referred to as just the "band." "Welt" is definitely a better name for it.
