1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: More babysweaters! Incl. nifty Origami type technique for seamless sweater on: April 10, 2007 12:12:09 AM
I really like your origami sweater idea. It reminds me of EZ's bog jacket in some ways. I think I'll give this one a go for my next baby sweater project. Thanks for the pattern.
sadly, i do not have any of her books - though the bog jacket has been mooted on 'knit and tonic' before now. halfway through i thought ' maybe i couldnt have done it another way' - but at least i knew what i was doing this way round.

Thanks for the pattern! I was trying to figure out how to make it from your description you posted first, but it makes sense now ^_^
lo, i am glad it does! thanks for test reading it for me  Smiley

it's a fun project, if only for the construction technique. there is nothing like keeping yourself on your toes (and picking up a new technique or two) whilst knitting small and simple items like baby clothes! Grin

i have used *goes to weigh cardi* 116grams. i.e. more than two skeins. but you may be able to squeeze it. it's close to two skeins.

I have added pattern notes and the pattern to my blog now. The yarn I used says 'knitting and crochet yarn', 85m/50g
I hope that gives you an idea of the thickness of the yarn. The gauge was 19St x 28R for 4x4in (10x10cm) using 4.5mm needles.

hello again,

still on the baby clothes. i finished a small version of Knitty's Vestee in my nice cheepo yarn (3.99 for 300g, 100% cotton)

i also made a little garter stitch cardigan - kind of based on a Debbie Bliss one (i think) which I browsed through in a bookshop one day - a very easy thing which i made more interesting for myself by trying to construct it entirely without seams! (well, there are two invisible seams, aka grafting, in there). it kind of folds like origami.

just a few teaser pictures here - the details are on my blog (in an hour's time!)

folds, invisible cast-ons and grafting at the shoulders results in a seamless garment

I have been busy the last week and made two cute baby sweaters.

Baby Yoda:

Not to my own patterns, but with modifications.
More detail on my blog.

Enjoy Smiley

i think the neck is actually supposed to roll!
it certainly never crossed my mind that it wouldn't - and i really like it that way too.

i agree with the prevoius poster - if you have any yarn left over, lengthen the body until you like it.

it looks very good on you!  Smiley

very pretty though!
and don't worry, the next cold season will come. i finished my tubey last may just as it was getting hot - and have finally managed to wear it this autumn and winter Smiley

yes, the body took longest. but, on the bright side, once you cast off, you are finished! no sewing, just a few loose ends to tidy.

a trick for you: when knitting for the day/evening/session, lay a contrast coloured thread in between the first couple of stiches. knit away, but the thread will show you how much you have knitted that session, i.e. one inch or whatever you manage. it's a better sense of achievement this way, move the thread with every session you do. you will have the desired length very quickly, because it wont seem quite so tedious - you can actually see progress every day Smiley
