Horse sweater

horsesweater1

Just after breakfast there was a little stop in the rain, so Eirin and I ran outside to take some photos ;) And I am glad we did because it has been raining nonstop since... We went out in such hurry that I had no time to steam it until after we got in ;)

And as I told you yesterday - I love the colours. If I had the patient I would knit me a sweater too in these colours.

The inside out. If you use your imagination, you can almost see the horses running so fast you barly manage to see them with their manes flapping in the wind. (Or maybe it is just me *lol*)

seaming

I used kichner stich under the sleeves. And you have to look close to find the "seam".

The only thing I regret with this sweater is that I didn't learn how to make joggless jogs before I started the yoke. But if you don't know where the pattern repeat starts and ends, you have to look closely to find it.

But I can make those joggless jogs now, because I have started on a Turn a square hat in the same colours as the sweater ;)

  3. Kjempeflott genser! Så lurt det var med den måten å sy sammen under armene på, jeg har en tykk søm under hvert erme på genseren jeg nettopp har fått ferdig.

  11. What a lovely sweater. Beautiful colours and a great pattern with those horses. I think my daughter Vera will like this too when I show it to her.

    The yarn on the picture on my blog (Icelandic Lopi in red, pink and white) will be used for an Icelandic sweater with horses for my daughter.

  16. The sweater is amazing. Eirin looks darling in it. Your kitchener stitch is amazing and your jogs aren't noticeable. You totally rocked that sweater! I wish it would rain here. Still in the 80 F and I've had it!

  17. Så utrolig smuk den er blevet! Du strikker meget meget flot og utroligt jævnt og ensartet.
    Du har ret i at man på bagsiden næsten får fornemmelsen af at hestene galoperer derudad med manen og det hele. FLOT FLOT FLOT!!!

  21. Den ble kjempefin. Artig med en litt uvanlig fargekombinasjon, som likevel er veldig "jentete". Eirin var supersøt i den:-) Og takk for hyggelige ord om vottene mine. Jeg var litt inspirert av deg og tenkte jeg måtte få tatt et ordentlig utendørsbilde selv om det regnet og regnet. Men i dag er det faktisk sol!

  24. Hei Hege
    Det var vel litt lenge siden jeg var innom deg, men her er jeg da!!!
    Nyyydelig genser, også med hest på, da!!! Kan tro at snuppa og jeg skulle hatt oss en slik en hver!

    Nydelig headerbilde du har fått også.
    Den lua til JARED er bare så flott. Har tenkt på den til sønnen, han sier han trenger luer.
    Ønsker deg en riktig god helg!

  25. Rosa OG hester må da være enhver liten jentes drøm :)

    Jeg lærte disse kjøkkenstingene i dag og er kjempefornøyd. Det er en utrolig lettvint måte å avslutte et arbeid på :)
