And here it is! A brand new knit and I'm already in love with it!!
^Getting ready for the shooting...
It took about 320 grams of 4ply wool, worked at a tension of 8 stitches to one inch on 3,5 mm needles on moss stitch pattern. The stitch is super easy and relaxing:
Right side: Knit 1, purl 1.
Wrong side: Knit.
^I fell in love with the model's hairstyle so I tried a sort of high chignon on myself. I usually don't like "up styles" on me but I think it didn't turn out that bad after all.
How much I love those box-top sleeves!! They simply stand on their own, without shoulder pads or anything. And the large, three-quarter sleeves are an original lovely late 40's style feature.
The pattern suggested to put some hooks and eyes at the neck opening, but since I had four small lovely vintage buttons I preferred to use them and crochet the buttonholes instead.
Note: The wool skirt I'm wearing in the pictures in also handmade.
Hope you like it!!
Bye for now! :)
