Description

New microfiber knitting yarns make it possible to knit faux fur garments. I was up for a project like this and knitted this gilet with the yarn “Peppina” from Lana Grossa. This season, I like gray- and anthracite shades very much. I knitted the gilet with a color gradient, started with “Gray” at the hem, mixed “Nude” with “Gray” in the middle and finished with “Nude”. This was possible because I worked with double yarn and mixed two balls always. I used thick needles and knitted in garter stitch, for a maximum fleece effect, and after finishing I combed the pile carefully with a hairbrush. Enrico the cat loves this gilet, too – It’s extremely fluffy!

Yours, Philo

      What a nice comment, thank you. I think with a pair of jeans it’s wearable, too, but I loved this gray outfit
