Fana For Fun
I spent a lot of time finding the right color to go with it. It is no secret that gray, black and white was out of the question. I decided for at light blue color. Man, was that hard to find. I was all over the internet place - and consider myself so lucky to have found just what I was looking for.
In Sweden they have this wonderful wool yarn called Kampes.
Just in the right blue color and not all solid colored. I love heather yarn, and it gives life to a garment.
So, the body is finished. I use an old pattern for this.
I cast on 296 stitches and then decreased in the sides to get a better shape on the jacket.
All these patterns have shapes for men - with wide tops and smaller the lower you get. Not very flattering for us women.
I knit pattern on the inside edges that are sewn to the inside of the jacket. Just like I did with this cat jacket.
I love it when the jacket opens and that there are some nice pattern so see inside as well. I will show you that later.
Anyway, I have started on the sleeves now. I can not wait to wear this - hopefully soon...
