I have made one before a few years ago but I said that 2015 was the year of garment knitting for me so I put down my gift knitting and got to work. I managed a cable repeat before bed. And since then I have been working away on it.
As you an see it is knit in pieces.
I got the back done and started on the front panels. With a 10 stitch repeat I find I wanted to complete one of them so that's made it go fast rather than inches and inches of stocking stitch, this I find makes a huge difference to how quickly I knit on this.
So this ended up being really speedy.
I managed from the marker below yesterday evening.
And tonight it loos like this.
Yay!! Back and fronts done. I have cast on the first sleeve so in theory hoping to have all the knitting done on it at the weekend maybe, possibly, small child willing.
I'm debating not adding a hood and just doing a collar.
I have been working briefly on a pair of socks for when it's not convient to work on this.
And this evening they look like this.
So they have had a little love. I'm really pleased with my progress so hoping to get some more good progress achieved this week.
