Description

I’ve started in the middle and worked down to the “skirt”. It was easier to take care of the width. The pattern was made by myself.
Sorry, I can’t say how I did it – I cannot read my notes twice (look at picture) :-)

      I even have a problem with the second sleeve or front piece. If it is too much time inbetween I can forget my notes…
      Thx for your nice comment.

    Yowza, this is absolutely stunning. I would totally buy that as a pattern for myself (…if I knew how to knit!). Awesome work!

    Ich fasse es nicht! Nicht nur die Strickerei oder das Strickmuster… vor allen Dingen der Schnitt! Also die Form die du der Jacke mit dem Muster gegeben hast. Sprich die ‘Epauletten’, der Kragen, der Ärmelabschluss, die Taille. Man ist das gut! staun

      Jetzt habe ich soviel genäht, so viele Schnittmuster verarbeitet, dass ich die Formen einfach inhaliert habe. Dann ist es mit dem Stricken auch nicht mehr so schwer. Das Schwierigste an der ganzen Sache ist – Wollstärke, Nadelstärke und eigenes Strickergebnis unter einen Hut zu bekommen. So ein Probelappen von 10 × 10 cm sagt gar nichts aus. Wenn man etwas lockerer strickt, wird es gleich viiieel weiter als gewünscht. Gerade am Anfang muß ich viel wieder aufmachen, bevor es das richtige Ergebnis aufweist, aber dann lasse ich mich einfach selbst überraschen, was es so wird. Wenn’s doof aussieht, mache ich es halt wieder auf – haha… Aber ich bin diesmal auch ganz besonders stolz auf meine tolle Jacke. Bei meinem nächsten Projekt, hat mein “Fotograf” hoffentlich mal wieder Zeit und geht nicht wieder fischen…

      I made some controlling notes – but I couldn’t read them twice… look at my new picture just posted. It everytime depends on how thick the wool is, what needles you use and your own “handwriting”. Some people are knitting very loose, some are very close… If I knit exactly from a pattern, I am not satisfied with the result. So you have to find “your way”. Thank you for you nice words. Best regards from northern Germany

      I start knitting two years ago and with every piece I like the challange more. Now – where I am older (45), I have the patience if it doesn’t fit like it should, I do parts of it again. If you look at my grey pullover from last year, I had to do the front part 3 times until the pattern and the correct fit was like it should. So try – best regards from Germany
