Tried so hard to finish this yesterday but those fringes took forever!! Never mind, it can go in here instead. I used this pattern and added a couple of changes: a hood, k3,P2 for the body, fringes done by hand into twists with a french knot to finish.

What a pretty, graceful jacket! I’ll bet the fringe took forever but it turned out so well.

Thank you salmonmac, I’m very happy with how it’s turned out - but that fringe was a real test for my patience!! :joy:


#5

That is gorgeous!


#6

Beautiful coat! Awesome work, as usual😉

I taught myself stranded colorwork a couple nights ago:) I swatched a Stranded Diamond pattern because I want to knit a few for Christmas presents! This is my swatch


Turns out, this swatch is useful as a headband lol


#8

Thank you so much :blush:


#9

Thank you x
I love your stranded swatch :blue_heart: It looks pretty perfect to me and makes a very stylish headband. I adore the colours in the variegated yarn


#10

Beautifully done! Your work and colors are very pretty.


#11

Thank you both!! Now I have to learn how to knit with dpns so I can actually knit the hat pattern that goes with this Stranded Diamonds pattern😁


#12

I’m working on another Christmas present project: Appleseed Coasters from MDK Field Guide #8 featuring patterns from Thea Coleman


#13

Take your time and I expect dpns will feel very awkward when you first try but just give it time and they will all start behaving for you.Remember you can use 2 circs or magic loop instead of dpns if it all feels really impossible but persevere is my advice. Good Luck :shamrock:


#14

Lovely, very pretty for Christmas


#15

Thank you for your encouragement!
I’m taking a class next week, at my lys, to learn more ways to knit in the round:) Came at a perfect time!!


#16

There is no stopping you! The coasters are very nice and will make a wonderful present.
It took me quite a while to figure out that I needed bamboo dpns rather than metal ones. Now I love to use them for projects.

I am working on another blanket for my youngest grandson’s Christmas present. I am using Knit Picks Brava yarn in the colors Caution, Canary and Custard. He wanted yellow since it is his favorite color. I am using the same pattern I used in his dad’s retirement afghan.
