The Sweater

This is the A-Line Jacket I am attempting to make. 
Vogue Knitting, Fall 2013, pattern by Kazekobo

I decided to make it in stockinette stitch rather than reverse, which just won't look as nice with the Noro; I think all I have to do to alter the (very simple) pattern is reverse the WS and RS. 

Finished the back and set it to block (reverse side shown): 

I'm using Noro Kureyon. The swatch I sampled came out at a perfect 15 st per inch. Well -- I didn't realize that Noro is thick-and-thin. So in spots it's actually more like 10 st per inch. Well, better roomy than snug, I guess! 

I'll keep you posted. Starting on a side now. I've made a lot of sweaters, cardigans all, and they really just didn't fit me well. They looked great, but didn't fit well. Here's hoping. 

What's that you say? Time for my eye drops? 
No thanks!

What's that you say? What does it mean, "Dog Bed?" 
Oh, well!


  1. Pretty stripes on your cardigan, can't wait to see it done!

  2. Ditto: Looking forward to seeing your pretty cardigan as it comes together.

  3. Good luck with the cardigan, the back looks great! Funny cats you have ;)

  4. Love the striping of Noro. It does all the work for you.

  5. I love how yours is knitting up. I love the thick and thin. I hope the gauge stays inconsistently consistent for you.

  6. Good start on that sweater. That thick and thin is a bit frustrating, but all will be well in the end.


I would love to hear from you!
