I was re-sewing the buttons onto this sweater when I realized I hadn’t blogged this one either! I finished this one a long time ago, sewed the buttons on rather shoddily (necessitating re-sewing them on!) and wore it a few times before we hit a warm spell. Judging by the weather today though, I might get a few more wears out of it!
(Sorry for the crappy lighting – taken at night!)
Top Down Sweatercoat
Pattern: my own design; hopefully forthcoming in the fall!
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in 2 colours, held doubled; 8 skeins total
This one is top-down, circular yoked. It went surprisingly fast considering the length, but the bulky gauge made for quick knitting! The front bands are short-rowed so that they’re wider in the skirt portion of the coat.
A better idea of the actual colour:
It’s raining and cool again today, so maybe I’ll wear it out! I need to get to Ikea to buy a new desk chair :) Any recommendations?
Other new knits on and off the needles…
Socks that Rock Mediumweight in “rose quartz”.
And I’ve got a new mini shawl pattern in the works!
Mmmmm, deep blue Handmaiden Casbah.
