Some weeks ago I finished my first big DIY project: a self-knitted blue coat. I already owned a black one and wanted to start something more extensive than scarfes or caps.
After I found the manual I decided (with the help of the salespeople) to modify the original version by using d different wool, different needle size and also chanching the color pattern to a structure pattern in just one color.
To make it even more intersting I decided to knit the front parts and the back in one, so there are no seems at the side. I used a 3.5 mm circular knitting neadle and – until the end – 22 balls of wool. Really a great help was the usage of KnitPro interchangeable needled which could be extended to a length of 2.40 m I needed for knitting the buttn border and collar (for them I had about 800 stitches on my needle).
I must confess that after I finished it is very hard for me not to wear it because I really love it! I think I could completely live in it!
You might woder why I don’t show it pulled of, but as I want some outdoor shoots and the weather is really bad, so I’ll promise to post very soon!
Do you also have a clothing item you could live in all time?
Have a wonderful time!
