1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Seed Stitch Baby Jacket in Raspberry on: January 02, 2009 02:12:44 PM
I finally finished this little sweater for my 6 month old niece.  It was fairly simple to knit, although all the seed-stitching got a little crazy  Tongue 

Link to the pattern is here: http://exercisebeforeknitting.com/seed-stitch-baby-jacket/

Hi!  I started this pattern awhile ago, and am at the Left Front Neck Shaping.  I'm a little confused about where I'm doing the decreasing.  I've bound off 12 stitches on the RS, but do I decrease at the end of that row on each alternating row, or do I decrease on the side where I've bound off the stitches?  Can someone give me a hand?  Thanks!!  Mandy

Love it!  This one is on my list of sweaters to make one day, and your FO has doubled my resolution to get on it soon!  Looks great Smiley

Holy cow, I never expected so many responses!  Thanks everyone!

Here's some quick answers to the questions:
This is the yarn I used (a hand dyed wool silk - incredibly luxurious and beautiful)- http://www.mysticalcreationyarns.com/woolsilk.htm

I knit it on straight needles - I can't remember what gauge though, and basically just did one long rectangle, and then two narrow rectangular sides that decreased slightly towards the top.  Then I sewed it together.  Normally I would turn it inside out, and then sew the lining in (like the Jordy Bag from the purse section), but for this, I sewed the lining right side in because I didn't want the bulk of the yarn at the top inside.  Ironing and interfacing are what made this work so well and look professional (I guess - I don't think it looks THAT professional, but it's sweet that so many of you said that!).

Handles are from here - http://www.joggles.com/store/catalog/index.php?cPath=356

Thanks again!

Wow, thanks for all the compliments - I was thinking it might look retarded, so thank you for affirming me  Grin

Oh and the yarn I used was the Bernat Alpaca blend - really fuzzy, soft and warm (and sheds everywhere!).

Thank you!!  I machine stitched the lining, and the fabric is just from my local fabric store, Fabricana (I'm in Vancouver BC Canada).  I knit it in the spring, and couldn't wait until fall to come so I could use it.  Oh and the brooch is from the dollar store!  Smiley

My own design, just a fun little purse.  I put interfacing on the lining so that it would hold it's shape better.  Thanks for looking!

I finally finished my Ballet Wrap Sweater, from the book 'Speed Knitting'.  The sweater itself didn't take long at all to knit, even with extending the sleeves to full length and putting a bell shape on the bottom.  But the sewing, weaving in ends and blocking always takes me forever.  Anyways, here it is.

I like it, except the shoulders are bulky, and my boobs are a bit too big for the style, but whatever - I'll wear it anyways Wink
