a very wooly yarm (75% new wool 25% acrylic)

With 75% wool it should block some however it is hard to be sure without knowing where that 25% acrylic is. Sometimes it is all blended together but once in awhile it is actually wrapped around or something.

I would definately not throw it in the washer & dryer with that much wool - unless of course it is "super-wash" treated wool.

Of course not. I was talking about 100% acrylic, replying to Roe --

As far as i know acrylic doesn't really stretch much when blocking. but i'm not an expert.

 I sorta overlooked the previous post that it was mixed with the wool.

I know this is probably a silly question, but for a minute I got a bit confused.. You write the gauge is 12 sts and 16 rows over 4". Does that mean that you counted 12 sts on the needle, and that 16 rows with this yarn produced 4"? Huh I usually don't have any doubts about gauge, but I guess it's just one of those days... Roll Eyes

Also, I'm guessing that the needle you used is 7 mm.?

That's right, the gauge can also be read as 3sts and 4 rows per inch.

Make four rectangles, two for the front and back (these might be square, depending on your size Wink), two for the sleeves and join them together.


Did you just seam them together? Or did you pick up stitches?

I just started it, but you can assemble it either way. Several people have made the sleeves first, then picked up stitches around and did the back and front seamless. I may try it that way, we'll see how it goes.

I've never blocked acrylic - just throw it in the washer and dryer and it fluffs up.

Shocked WOW! Both are amazing! I would love to get my hands on the pattern for the sweater Wink

Great job!

The sweater's easy... Make four rectangles, two for the front and back (these might be square, depending on your size Wink), two for the sleeves and join them together. I'm going to shape the sleeves a little, I don't care for them quite so floppy on the lower end.

Well, not wrong, I guess. I hardly ever use them. <g> And you can sorta do without in this pattern, they're used to mark the increase on the 6th stitch. I haven't made it, but tried it out with some lightweight yarn to see what it looked like.

Yeah, klaralund is very easy to knit. It consists of 4 rectangles, 2 for the body and 2 for the sleeves. Each one is made up of st sts and gt sts. Too bad you have to buy the book to get the pattern. However, someone posted on craftster sometimes back that they come up with the pattern by studying the various pics of klaralund.

Thanks, I think I've figured it out pretty much the same way. Also ran across the pattern corrections and yahoo knitalong which should be enough to get me started on it. Now to figure out which yarn -- can't afford Silk Garden, so it may be from some solid color I already have. Hmmmm....

Ooooooooh! Love the Klaralund. Is there a way to buy just the pattern itself, not the whole book? Though I bet I could figure out something close. It's done in garter stitch, right?

I agree, you only decrease at each end of those rows. Looking at the diagram, they're there for shaping. Or you could skip the decreases and make the sides straight.
