Would anyone like to join me in knitting Jeanie?


I just love it! I was actually thinking of knitting clapotis but after seeing this I just have to make it. Its going to be my Christmas present to myself  Grin.

I am using some dk weight superwash that I ordered from knitpicks awhile back.

I've already started it, so I'll definitely join this knit-along.
I'm using some Knitpicks palatte in garnet heather that I bought for Knitty's Hush Hush, but realizes quickly that, being wool, it was completely inappropriate. Then I decided to make Muir, but even after three tries I somehow managed to mess that one up every time. But Jeanie is way prettier, and I can't wait!

Anyone know how I could modify it into a scarf?

Well it's done with sock yarn on US6s, so maybe lace weight with appropriately smaller needles? Other than that all I can think of is reducing the pattern repeats in the center panel, which would change the look of it.

You could also make it narrower by cutting out chart B, and having each row be ACA instead of ABACABA and/or narrow chart C.

I just got my yarn for this! I am using Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Red Willow. How is it going for everyone?

It's going great. I'm about 12 rows in.
Unfortunately, I'll have to rip it out and save the pattern for later. Or maybe I'll save it on some yarn. Though, honestly, with only 12 rows I'm not sure which would take longer to start again.
I finally convinced my boyfriend to let me teach him to knit,and the pattern he picked out uses the same needles as Jeanie. Since I'm not far I'll just rip it out and start again in three weeks when he's out of my life for 4 and a half months (I'll be in Mexico) So he has three weeks to knit his project, then I'm takin' my needles with me and gonna knit Jeanie in Mexico. It will be fantastic.

I hope I get yarn to knit this for Christmas or my birthday, if not, then I will order some after the first of the year.  Just have to finish a shawl that I am working on first. Grin

I'm on row 25 now. It's turning out so nice! I can't believe people want to use this yarn for socks :/ hehe. I dropped my first set of stitches - kind of scary but also exciting! I've never gotten to do that on purpose before! The pattern is very easy to memorize but I still keep the chart handy. I'll try to post pictures sometime - gotta get ready for work now though.

I'll be getting to this one of these days, but of course I must buy the yarn now.  Might holding 2 strands of laceweight together work?  I'm thinking knitpick's shimmer.
