My first original post. Hope it works out!

I saw this today on eBay. Check out the close-up pictures. This could totally be knit on biggish needles with novelty yarn:


Note they very thoughtfull tell you the yarn is 79% mohair, 19% wool, and 2% polyacrilicsomething. And the lining is poly/cotton mesh.

Essentially, it's a big-gauge sweater on a lace-y cotton lining with a mess of big loops.

Even if you paid $200 for the really good yarn, you'd still save enough to buy a good used car. You could use $50 of cheaper yarn, and get a decent sound system.

You could buy a used car! Wow

It looks like it's got a middle layer of some kind of netting to give it some stiffness, too.

It would most definately be a fast knit on big needles and you've even got the pictures to show you what needs to be done Smiley

Are you going to knit it?  I doubt I will, but I would be interested to see what you come up with!

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

I think the netting is... netting. A lining, kind of. Lace would be cute.

I MAY knit this... much much later.

That is lovely!  You could even start off with a sweater knit fabric and a jacket pattern if knitting is not your thing.
For a knitting pattern, this one from knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTblancheneige.html would be a great jump off point.
