February FO # 1

Ok, so these FOs are not necessarily finished in February, but as I mentioned the other day, I have some unblogged FOs to show you.

Here's the first one, "Stripes and cable", a modified version of Kirsten Kapur's Perry Street Rugby





Modifications:
  • The recipient did not want garter stitch, so I did stockinette stitch.
  • Worked in the round until arm openings.
  • To avoid curling, some ribbing at the bottom of the body (k3, p1).
  • Sleeves also with ribbed cuff k3, p1 and stickinette stitch.
  • A shorter sleeve cap



I like the wide cable. Actually, the recipient didn't want the cable either, but mum said, "no cabl,e no sweater, young man!". So cable there is. Not the best photo, but you get the idea. 



The yarn is Garnstudio DROPS Big Merino. It's good to knit with, but the resulting garment is a bit heavy to my liking.  But the recipient is happy, and wears it quite a lot, so then I'm happy too. He chose the colours.

Thanks for comments on my last post. Miranne tells us about the day she learnt the "Old Norwegian Cast On" or "Twisted German" cast on. Mary Lou also uses this name, probably on the same cast on?

"Kjært barn har mange navn" is a Norwegian saying, meaning "A loved child has many names", it's probably true for knitting techniques also!

Kjempeflott genser og det er godt du fikk med den fletten for den gjorde seg virkelig.
