A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

September 9, 2009


Pattern: Coraline by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: 6 skeins Cascade Pure Alpaca
Needles: US 2, 3 and 4 Addi Turbos
Notes: I knit the body on 4s. I made it slightly shorter than called for in the pattern because I expect this yarn to stretch with wear. When I started the sleeves my gauge was too floppy. I switched to 3s instead and also knit the sleeves a little shorter. I continued on 3s for the yoke and then switched to 2s for the i-cord bind off since I wanted that to be really firm. The buttons are by Danforth Pewter.

ETA: The buttons are from the Fiber Gallery.
