Copenhagen jacket

20161119_155547

This jacket is made in thin pure wool, in stockinette and with garter st edges.

There is a decorative tuck in a contrasting color both on the sleeves and around the edge of the jacket.

The construction is as a regular, longer jacket, with raglan sleeves, and it has a knitted edge around, that makes a very flattering shape.

It can be worn open, or, if desired, closed with a pin or button. The collar can be worn on the inside of the tuck, or it can fall out over the tuck. The sleeves are quite long, and can be worn as is, or folded up to half the length of the cuffs.

Bristol sweater

dsc_0138This sweater has a 50’s feel to it, don’t you think? It is similar to the Dublin dress, but the sweater is knit with only one strand of yarn and on thinner needles. Another difference is that it is knit top down.

As always, I have paid a lot of attention to the details. I have used the contiguous method so that the sleeves and body comes together perfectly. To ensure that the finished garment is extremely elastic I have used italian cast on and bind off together with a pattern that basicly is a rib/cable pattern with small bobbles in it. The elastic pattern and cast on/bind off makes this almost a one size fits all (but of course the pattern is available in S, M and L, to secure the perfect fit that we want).
