Color Stich By Stitch

 
I can finally show you how my knitted jacket is going to be. At least some of it.

It´s so much fun knitting. I couldn´t do it without the inspiration I got from the book Color by Kristin. I saw color in a totally different way - and I would never have thought that the colors I chose would be so perfect for me to knit with.

I knit it in one round piece and cut it open after I´m finished. I´m planing on making buttons in polymer clay and jewelry to go with it.

I love this project - it brings out my joy in creating.

You can find the pattern here. It´s translated into english among other languages.

I use Rauma finull and Pt2 for it. Those are norwegian yarn, but I think you can get it in other countries as well.

Anyway - I enjoy to knit this jacket stitch by stitch.


I like making a piece of string into something I can wear
