FO - new pattern

New Knitty, with my Ester pattern is up.

It was named after a very dear friend who died this summer, and in her memory really should be knit in purple.

Thanks for this great pattern - I immediately fell in love with it, and loved your comment about mentally unravelling people. Glad to know I'm not alone with this slightly obsessive quirk. People do tend to get uncomfortable when you've stared at them for too long though...

Is that photo taken in Greenwich foot tunnel?!

That is fantastic! Just what I've been looking for since watching The Verdict a few weeks ago & seeing Ingrid Tarrant with a wrap with armholes! Not a patch on yours as hers was a beige ribbed affair, but I loved the concept. Thank you so much for your time, creativity & generosity in sharing your talent.

I'm very sorry about your friend. However, I would like to personally thank you for including larger sizes. Those of us who need them APPRECIATE IT!

gina said...

Gorgeous! Love the selection of color and stitch. Really great work.

Klari said...

It's beautiful. The construction is very witty and i love this modern version of the aran style.
I'm probably going to hurry and knit it before winter's over.

Condolences and congratulations.

Hi, I just started this tonight, and I am wondering about the sizing. How stretched is the ribbing supposed to be? I've gotten about 10 rows in, and it is supposed to be 17 inches wide for the size I'm doing. It is more like 11! If I really stretch it it might be 17, but it doesn't look that stretched in the photos. I'm knitting it in a different yarn, but I did get gauge.

Alice said...

note for Joanna (you didn't leave an email and your blogger profile is locked, so hope you think to check back here...)

The measurements were taken over the cable pattern, not ribbing, so you'd expect them to be slightly narrower at this point but not that much of a difference! It was relaxed, but not stretched, at all. I can only think that your ribbing style is especially tight (a simple st st gague doesn't fit everything) and/or maybe you are using a tight cast on?

Try changing cast on, and maybe go up a needle size (or if you like the feel of the fabric at that gauge, do a size up).

It's hard to give any more advice than that, if you are still having trouble EMAIL ME (address on knitty pattern page) and I'll see if can be of more help.

Love this so much we're starting a KAL!!! Thanks for the dreamy pattern. We're all knitting in purple so far :-)

Webbo said...

I just finished knitting your lovely pattern. I adore it. For a number of reasons, wearing it now reminds me of a friend of mine who sadly died. Making something is a beautiful way to pay tribute to your loss.
