Rowan Patti

10 Jun 2007

I'm so sorry. It took me longer to sew this sucker up than I thought it would. This is because the sewing up involved

a) knitting the button bands
b) knitting the collar

However, here she is done.

Project Specifications

Pattern: Patti by Rowan from Rowan collection 1
Yarn: 11 Balls Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed DK in 'magnolia' - from the Wool Inn in Penrith.
Modifications: None. Except maybe I lost interest in the collar and cast off a tad early.

Notes: I made the biggest size, it is possibly a bit big for me.

Also, the weight of the pleats pull the garter row down a bit and make it a bit uneven - this is possibly the yarn substitution. The yarn called for is Rowan Felted Tweed which I haven't seen but I imagine knits a bit of a thicker fabric with a bit more structure.

I think I might reinforce this with a strip of thick velvet ribbon on the inside (which will look nice anyway).

Please excuse the masking tape and newspaper in the background, for guess what!!?? The painting weekend has arrived - and here are the first works in progress shots.

See the broken light? That is the first disaster caused by he who shall not be named throwing an ugg boot over his shoulder as an act of humour. It's such a shame we'll have to replace that light fitting, I loved it so much (note dripping sarcasm)..
I didn't get angry with him of course. I just brought it to his attention that any of these would be suitable replacements.
