Truly happy and loving this “Flower Power” Coat
Coat is finally finished. Smiles, it only took me 4 summers to knit up.
Wow… You may say, but being fingering weight, needles 2.25 mm and in a black as you can see for most of the knitting. I really needed good lighting and the best was, sunlight outside in my backyard. Then the challenge of cutting the front open, something we knitters call “Steeking” and picking up stitches to bind the front edge…woha, a little nerve-racking. Only because I already invested that many year of knitting into the coat. Really did not want to muck this part up…Yes perfect all great.
You can see the inside of the coat is just a beautiful as the ousie..smile.
The pattern and yarn are from Christel Seyfarth Shetland Lambswool she has some stunning and beautiful designs.
As I have shortened this jacket I had to modify some areas. So it is not true version of her coat. Therefore I have lots of yarn left. for some other project. Then I still have a foul box of her yarn for another coat of shawl..

This knitting technic called Entrelac is not as difficult as You may think it is….
I have put a little video together on how to work the block on the right side on how to merge the two sections together….
I will be working on a view more videos in the next view days, that will show you how to Merge the sections together on the purl side. And hopefully also the two triangle section on each side. The last row with all the casting off triangles …..Yes then off to the sleeves and the collar.
So please visit for More Videos to follow soon….and Hope to have pattern available for this Cardi Entrelac Style soon too.
Blowing in the summer wind it is for sure…
This Origami Shrug by Melissa Wehrle is so soft and light. It has been on my mind for way to long to knit this shrug up. Since I have the book now for several years I thought it really is time to start knit it up too…
Can you tell I am Soooo loving it .
I used 5 skeins of my absolute favourite yarn called Louet MerLin Sport Weight a total of 1142 meters where knit up with needle US 6 -4.0mm in the Aqua colour. So sad though this yarn is now discontinued ;-(((
If I would knit this Origami Shrug again I would be to use my KnitswissYarns in sport weight. Really think it would be stunning too.
Totally in love with this Origami Shrug.
When it came to sewing the back together I put the stitches on two separate needles and used the Kitchener this way…no one will see a seam!
(Now if you are going to knit this one up, look at the pattern errata there is a correction that is important to know! )
