FOLKLORE JACKET GREEN
About jackets and coats
All my designs with colour work are worked on cirkular needles, and steeking. Following each pattern, there is a clear description for how the model is cut, sewn and finished.
When knitting with 2 colours, you "weave" the colour you are not using in every 2, 3, or 4 sts for in this way to avoid long strands on the back of work. This technique is called Fair Isle and is used when working in the round or (on rightside rows) when working back and forth.
The Folklore jacket is knitted in Supersoft lambswool on size 3.5 circular needles in 40 cm, 60 cm, 80 cm and 120 cm.
