Ribby Jacket


This is the pattern booklet I got at Knitting Camp in late April ... it was a simple knit, all 2 x 1 ribbing, knit flat. I finished it in a month, and must admit I hurt my hands by knitting all that ribbing, too quickly.

Anyway. Here's the end result!


Knit with Cascade 220. Delightful stuff! It's pilling pretty quickly, but I'm willing to forgive it, for its softness and warmth!

I've done the button / buttonloop twice now - once too low, and it's currently too high - so hopefully I'll be third time lucky! But it's a very comfy cardy, I really love it. Petal loves it too, and keeps pulling and chewing at it. Hmmm.

  5. Bravo! These simple sweaters may be a slog to make, but they will enhance the wardrobe for years! It even makes a coathanger look good.

    Pet the puppy. It will help heal your hands.

  6. Beautiful Sweater!

    sounds about right for a puppy. Mine would always tug and pull at skirts I was wearing. That was the best toy ever. They still like to walk under them and hide. :D

    hilarious.
