I have made another Novice sweater from petiteknit, this time in acrylic yarn, tweed dreams from Hobbii. I used the same size needles as the first one I made.
I have knitted the Novice sweater from Petite knit, using Tweed delight from hobbii. (85% uld, 10% akryl, 5% viskose, 50 g/ 100 m, needle size 4,5-5, 10 x 10 cm = 18 m x 24 p). I knitted size S, using needles sizes 5,5 and 6 as per the instructions. I lenghtened the body […]
I have made 5 Hepburns; it is freezing at the moment, and I wear my Kanona wool sweater nonstop, and needed something with a turtleneck to stop the itching at my neck. I blenden size 8 on top/ size 10 hips, and halved the height of the turtleneck to a mock turtleneck. I made them […]
I just finished this sweater, I made it in Sandnes Alpakka/wool. It is soft and warm, and I have worn it since I finished it. The instructions were very poor, and the part about the finishing the neckline was totally missing, but I made it work.
I have made the Busan top from Itch to Stitch, and really like it! ITS patterns are always very well made, pattern pieces matching, notches etc precise placed, and pattern files always layered so you can choose your size. This pattern is actually very projector friendly as well, as all pattern pieces for the main […]
I really love the designs from I am (the PDF patterns themselves are not layered, and all sizes are in black, so I don’t love them), and have made several Zebre and Apollon sweatshirts this summer. I was not sure about the Lion; the giant puff sleeves make the shoulders look very broad. But in […]
I love sewing jeans and pants, and have made several Liana stretch jeans from Itch to Stitch (10 pairs? 15 maybe?), Morgan jeans, Dawn jeans and many more. I also love buying patterns, even though a pant is a pant, and it is pretty easy to adjust waist height/ leg width to look like the […]
Ok, I am really enjoying the patterns from I am at the moment! Yesterday I made the I am Joy , and I really like it! I made it in a woven rayon/ viscose, my all time favourite fabric. Soft, silky, lovely drape and easy to sew. I made size 40 on top and 44 […]
Today I made a sweatshirt, Apollon – it is pretty basic and I really like it! The fabric is non stretch French terry, I think it must be 100% cotton, no spandex. I graded from 38 at top to 42 at bottom, and will lengthen the sleeves by 3 cm on my next (for this […]
I need some layering pieces for the Danish summer; it can go very quickly from warn to chilly! So I made the Zebra in a heavy sweatshirt knit with zero stretch. It came out much better than I expected, as I worried that the pattern needed some stretch. I added 3 cm to body length […]
