Our Needlecraft Guild competition this year had the theme of "25" as it was our 25th anniversary. For my entry in the knitting/crochet class I devised a square that was knitted from the centre out so that it had exactly the same number of stitches on each side and the squares could be grafted together instead of sewn. (I do not like sewing up my knitting. I always get it wrong and it looks lumpy)
This jacket/coat/cardigan is made of exactly 25 squares. Here it is modelled by my daughter, although it is way too large for her.Technical details
The yarn I used was Elle Escapade DK col. 371 Ginger Glow. I don't think it is available any more. This yarn is 100 % Acrylic and the cardigan took 5 x 100g balls.
I used two 4mm circulars needles for each square and I used a very long one for finishing the edging.
Although I carefully knitted a tension square and calculated all the dimensions it turned out rather larger than I intended.
Here it is laid out flat.
The buttons are Dorset buttons made from slices of pvc pipe, sanded smooth and wrapped with the same yarn as the cardigan.
