With plenty of hot weather ahead of us I'm thankfully not too late in getting this pattern out! Made with a chunky T-shirt yarn "Tee Cakes" by HiKoo and #19US or 15mm it works up super quick.
The openwork section, a wide neck and generous side openings make this a perfect summer “T” and I would rate this for at least the advanced beginner because of the openwork section and how the bottom section is worked in the round.

Here's a little sneak peak at a design I just completed for The BagSmith
that will be showing the beginning of August at Stitches Midwest... kits will be available at that time as well.
The coat is made using a piece of merino/silk felt fabric (top section) with a yarn that was spun from the same fiber for the bottom section. It was nice to mix it up from the usual by incorporating the felt and since the felt makes up a large part of the piece the knitting (on a #17US, 13mm) works up in no time. Super toasty, this will be a great coat for the coming colder months.
OMGAWDDDD THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOO COOL - LOVE IT !!! This is something I would never tire of wearing or even looking at - so unusual and wonderful!! Alas, not sure I could ever pull it off since I am not a 'sewer' and the felt fabric???? Sigh..... damn, it is awesome!! Well done!!:):)ReplyDelete
Thank you!! Actually there's no sewing!! The beauty of the felt fabric is you can needle felt pieces together. It's a surprisingly simple construction and works up pretty quickly:)Delete
