Noch ein Jäckchen aus Sockengarn, diesmal handgefärbt

Aehm - doch ja, ich hab schon wieder ein Sockenwoll-Jäckchen gestrickt - diesmal eine Featherweight Cardigan aus 300g handgefärbtem Sockengarn - ich hatte 2 grasgrüne Stränge aus tinkus handgefärbten Merinchen und einen limonengelgrünen Strang Coonie-Blau-Wolle.

Ich hab die Raglanpasse mit dem limonengrünen gemacht, dann die grünen eingeblendet und den Abschluss unten und die Blende mit dem grasgrünen gestrickt.

OK, beim nächsten Mal würde ich für die Blende ein Muster nehmen, das vorne und hinten gleich aussieht - aber mir gefällt sie und ich hab sie auch schon mehrfach getragen.



Finished - quite like it! Wider and longer than I would have thought. Quite like the shawl collar, however, if I did it again, I would probably go for a reversible pattern like garter or ribbing or seed stitch. Nevertheless, turns out fine, though I am not sure I will really use the crochested string to close it. In addition, I would probably do some waist shaping if I did it again. If have app. 10g left from the second green skein.

Finished knitting - ended up with 12 decreases per sleeve every 8th row, and 12 rows of k1 p1 ribbing. So this will probably be app.7/8 sleeves. The collar rolls a little at the moment, hope this will block out.

Sep. 13th
After 10 cm sleeve, I am at 64,5g yarn - that means
I used app. 1,55g per cm length -which means my total sleeve will be app. 25 cm long - which would be a 3/4 or 7/8 sleeve - fine, I think.

Sep 10th
Picked up stitches for sleeves, 93 stitches in total, intend to work 2 dec. every 8 rows. 80 g of yarn left, i.e. 40 g per sleeve.

Aug 27th
Finished body, did app. 5 cm of ribing k1p1 and bound of in ribbing with crochet cast off. 57 cm length in total. Now for the “band” - intend to do it similair to this project with purl ridges and eylets.

Aug 25th
app. 49 cm length in total, nearly used up green skein and switched to lime yellow again. Intend to make it app. 56 - 57 cm long.

Aug 13th
Switched to green yarn shortly before separating sleeves from body - knit 2 rows new colour, 2 rows old color, 1 row each new and old colour to blend in. Separated sleeves from body, intend to finish body with green yarn and use lime yarn for front bands.

Needed a mindless project, started this at Schwarzwaldstrick - hope 3 skeins will be enough!
