1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tree Jacket from Zephyr Style on: January 08, 2008 04:43:15 PM
I knit this over winter break from school.  It was a great way to relax and also have a goal at the same time.

Somehow I managed to mess up the garter stitch in a few places, but I think I'm the only one who will notice!  I love it.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous!  I love the way the cables decrease at the neckline!

I love this cardigan! Do you have a pattern for it?? I'd love to be able to make one for myself some day!

It's from the Fall 07 Interweave magazine... I'm not sure where to get backorders, but  you can probably check their website.

I had no experience seaming, so I used some hints in the back of the Interweave magazine.  I used a backstitch for most of the seams, since the moss stitch makes a pretty thick fabric.  I had a difficult time wrestling the sleeves into the armholes... and thus, the resulting poufs.

Very nice!  You've inspired me to cast on for this... or at least add it to my Ravelry queue!

Ooooh!  So pretty!  I love the orange.  What a great color!

I finished my Minimalist Cardigan a few weeks ago and I love it.  It is now my go-to cardigan.

I used 3 + a little of a 4th skein of Cascade 220 Heathers in Garnet.  It took me about six weeks to finish, but I'm in the middle of my first semester of law school, so it took me a little longer than it would probably take a normal person with a normal life!

Somehow the sleeve-tops came out bigger than the sleeve-holes on the body, but I managed to seam them into puffed sleeves, and I really like the look.

And... more on my blog... http://castonacupcake.blogspot.com/

I finished this for a wedding in September.

The yarn was Lion Brand Microspun because I'm a poor student... and I can't find cotton ease anywhere!

(My boyfriend took the pictures in the Botanical Gardens where the wedding was held...)

The straps were pretty easy- about an inch before I wanted the top of the shirt to be, I started knitting in garter stitch (which if one row of knit, one row of purl, when you're knitting the round).  Then, I divided the stitches with stitch markers- I was using 196 stitches, I think, and I wanted the straps placed evenly around, with 35% of the stitches on the front and the back, and 15% of the stitches on the sides (these measurements came from indieknittiner, who knit these straps first and was my inspiration!).  Then, I bound off, but knit the first & last ten stitches of the front and back sections.  These are the straps.  I picked up the stitches for onr of the straps in the back, then knit it up flat.  I did two stitches of garter and then 6 of sotckingette to make up the straps, then grafted (kitchenered) the strap to the front ten stitches!

Good luck- there are many other strap modifications in the original Lelah post.
