Waistcoat !! Sweatercoat!!

                               Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!

                                              Had so much fun getting back
               into knitting........ I finished this sweater...

                          Do you want to see it??


                               The colour is oatmeal..

                                I knitted with James C. Brett
                              Rustic  Mega Chunky Yarn....

 Pattern Jb118

                      So this pattern knitted up really fast.
                           Used #12mm knitting needles.

                       But I took my's been some
               time that I have knitted and adding in a cable

                               Ta Da!!!! drum roll please.....

                             I chose one BIG wooden button.

                   Such a cute sweater for this time of the year.

                          Here's a closer look at the cable.



                                     I really liked the gray...
                          that's on the model but gray is not
                                      my colour....

                 How did you keep busy over the last month?

                               Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I was here earlier, and got sidetracked!
    That is amazing, Linda!
    Could you do it with long sleeves?
    I love it!♥️
    I made Miss V an ear warmer, and I started a crochet teddy bear for her for Easter....
    Wish me luck!
    Wish I could find a pattern like yours in crochet......
    Enjoy your week....
    Cheers a!
    Linda :o)

  3. Oh my goodness! That sweater is just beautiful! I absolutely love it. Love the oversized button that you used too. I bet it's comfortable. You did a great job on it.

  4. I love it but I do not knit. Do you have an Etsy shop? Sure would buy one if you did!
