I’m starting a new knitting project. My colleague, seeing that I really enjoy knitting at the moment, offered me a pattern. It’s a hooded Coat from Shepherd. She said it’s an old time Kiwi favorite and so many kids were wearing this jacket here in New-Zealand. It is very convenient as the size can fit a 6 months to a 1 year old baby.
I’ve decided to go with Cleckheaton tweed yarn. I went for a dark color as I see it as a winter jacket. I like the look of the tweed but, as I knit, I keep taking them out as I’m annoyed that something is sticking out.
The pattern is easy to follow and I had no difficulty to create the texture. However, when it is necessary to decrease, I can’t seem to follow the pattern correctly and I keep unpicking it. Hope, I will crack the code.
Are you knitting anything specific at the moment? Please leave a comment and let me know. I would love to hear (and see, if you have a blog post about it).
