I just finished my Bell Sleeve Jacket from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2006 and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
Actually I'm more like extremely excited. I really like how this one looks.
I used 7 skeins of Cascade 220 color #8234 pistachio with size 6 needles. I started on 6/16/07 and finished the knitting on 8/13/07. I really enjoyed knitting this one. It had the right amount of cables, bobbles and shaping to keep me interested. I like how the bobbles are shaped like little leafs (or candle flames) and I really like the placement of the cables and how the ribs join into cables at the waist and then separate out into ribs again. I made a couple of modifications to the pattern. I changed the lower edge from a plain garter stitch type edge to a k4p4 edge to match that of the collar and sleeves. I also didn't make a knit belt like the pattern called for. Instead I added 6 buttons and crochet button loops and made it into more of a cardigan.
I love how the Cascade 220 really lets the cables stand out. I'm a real fan of this yarn and plan on using their superwash version for my next project.
I have a couple more photos and detailed descriptions of how I made my modifications, and the errors I think I came across on my blog.
