I think I have lost track of all the comments and compliments that poured into my inboxes for the past 4 days! Thank you very much for your gracious and kind compliments on Cable Braided Necklace. I am truly humbled that so many of you have found it amazing and have made it already. That little technique does go even further, but I hope to show it to you possibly next week. With this blog and with projects and deadlines and holiday craze it’s hard to keep promises. But we shall see!
Today I want to share a skeleton from my closet… that is something I have knit and worn and loved for many months and years now. It was planned and designed even much earlier prior to its final execution. But a staple that every wardrobe needs. Female or male. It’s rather unisex in style and simplicity, the overall textured look of it – effortless and quick. Dress it up or dress it down, for a ride down the country or belt it with a skirt and pair of heels.
FLOGS jacket being chunky shows a great example of Garter stitch and its great versatility. It’s very elastic and stretchy. With the right choice of yarn it can easily be that go-to cardigan or jacket for you.
For Love Of Garter Stitch.
Worked top down featuring circular yoke and seamless construction as sleeves are worked in the round. To accommodate many tastes, there are two various length instructions provided for the sleeves. Bracelet length and regular full length.
The stand up collar is great as it can reveal a little and hide some when needed. It’s rather wide, so a scarf can easily be worn around your neck and still be visible!
Here are some pattern specifications.
I used Laines du Nord Korall, which is a discontinued yarn, but one can use any bulky weight yarn.
