Today I went went with my Best beloved, his brother and wife to “Field Days” in Hamilton. Why? Well Best Beloved he wanted a vermin and small bird proof chicken feeder and a water container that the chickens could not manage to relieve themselves in. And he got them both.
Me, I wanted garlic bulbs to plant in the next week or so. And I didn’t get them!!
But what I did get is a wonderful array of Touch Yarn wools. So many colours in different weights and yarn types – bouclé to mohair, to 2ply and sock yarn, 8ply and 12ply etc – all short sections in little hanks. An absolute treasure trove for me. I am so delighted.
You needed to see my precious jewels, my Treasure Trove. Yes there were many many more yarns in many many colourways, but these were small sections of many different colour ways and yarn types – entirely suitable for my multi colour free form intarsia knit designs.
Oh and I met Marnie Kelly at last.
The jacket is knitted in one piece from left sleeve cuff to right sleeve cuff. The colour sequence creates different colour effects – that is the left sleeve and left front are different to the right sleeve and right front. You can create this jacket using less or more colours and you could also create the jacket with the colour sequence mirrored if you wish.
The yarns used are 12 ply or triple knit weight that knit up at 12st / 19 rows for 10cm. Use this pattern to reduce that stash. In my example I used 6 different colours, mainly mohair but all yarns that knitted up at 12 st / 19 rows for 10cm.
The knitting is finished with a crochet edge – which could be created using any of the colours in the jacket.
My Vertical Asia Jacket was included in an exhibition held in Auckland New Zealand that was attended by a group of knitters from the USA on the New Zealand & Australian Vogue Knitters Tour of 2007.
