In einem Pinselstrich: Hitofude Lacejacke

Aehm - ich hab schon ziemlich lange keüssiine Jacke mehr gezeigt, echt jetzt! ;-)
Diese hier wollte ich auch erst gar nicht stricken, allover Lace kam mir für mich Schussel schon arg ambitioniert vor und der Anfang war auch mühsam... Aber wenn frau erstmal drin ist im Muster, läuft es super! Ich hab allerdings nicht geblickt, dass ich hätte gleich mehr Mustersätze anschlagen muessen, wenn ich längere Ärmel hätte haben wollen - und nochmal aufziehen wollte ich nicht. Wie auch immer, diese Jacke ist ein ideales Sommerjäckle, und sie wird sicher nicht allein bleiben - ich plane bereits Nummero 2 , bin mir aber noch nicht schlüssig, ob aus normalem Sockengarn in beige oder aus edlem Babyalpka mit Seide in hellgrau.. Auf alle Fälle will ich die an Heiligabend anziehen, hab ich mir so gedacht... Diese hier ist wieder aus meinem geliebten Supergarne Sockengarn mit Baumwolle.

Interesting to knit for sure! Pattern is not too complicated, once you got the hang of it and it keeps knitting interesting. If I did it again, I would cast on at least 1, if not 2 pattern repeats more per sleeve to make 3/4 or even 7/8 sleeves. But do not like the look of cuffs when picking up stitches around sleeves which some did, so I will leave it like this. Also would go for size M and not S only. Did the strechy bind off all around. Did one additional repeat of Chart A after the increase charts and did 2.5 cm of ribbing, which gave me a total length of 31.5 cm after ribbing band under arms before blocking. Seems to have grown a little in washing, can’t wait to try it on when dry!

Finished knitting on our trip back from Pitztal - tried it on before washing and blocking, size M would have been better - but I think it will be wearable….

Messed up a little with the increases - should be kfb18 4times, before and after each side marker - I mixed up the middle part and only did kfb 15 times after w2nd side marker which is why I had too many stitches left before the last side marker and bound of more for the neck. Well, managed to fiddle around and tried on - seems to fit ok. Sleeves are currentyl exactly before elbow - not sure if I will lengthen them…

Did only 14 repeats, bound off the sleeves today.

Aug. 22nd
Did 12 repeats for arms, 26 cm in length unstreched.
So I plan to do 15 repeats in total for arm circumference.
Sleeves will be quite short, however, I might add some length with picking up stitches around armholes and add longer sleeves after finishing.

Oh-oh - wanted to start this during our Schwarzwaldstrick Knitting retreat, but managed to make 2 mistakes in the lace pattern already when starting the swatch on the streetcar while listening to audiobooks - maybe not such a good thing to knit at a retreat… However, gauge swatch is 15 cm width (unstretched) for 3 repeats of 12 stitches and 7 cm in heights for 3 repeats.
Think I will use this video’s method for the provisional cast on so I have it directly on the needle and do not need to pick up from a chain - thanks to Gooster65!

  1. Das ist also aus deinem braunen Garn geworden, hübsches Jäckchen. Aber ich glaube, das wäre mir zu anstrengend zu stricken. Mal ein kleines Lacemuster finde ich ja ganz interessant, aber auch da komme ich schon mal durcheinander.
