Kermit

Sweater with cap sleeves is done. I'd like to say that the pattern was great, but there were some huh? moments for me in it. You can really tell it was translated from German. Maybe it would have made more sense if I followed the German version.

It's knit flat, then seamed at the shoulders and sides. I really despise seaming. So very much! The shoulders look terrible, but the sides are the best I've ever done. Go figure.

The pattern says to: "crochet 1 round sl-st each over 2 rows in height along pick-up sts for armhole bands, starting each at lower edge and ending at shoulder". This is the part I don't get. So I left it out ;)

Maybe I'll do single crochet later, if it turns out that the sleeves roll too much.

I still need to wash it a and block it properly, I only blocked the edges so that I can sew up the sides.

The yarn I used here is Merino Mix by Schoeller+Stahl, green color, the color of Kermit the frog. Well, not really, the site says it's the color of birch, but it sure looks Kermity to me. Kermit took 6 skeins exactly, on 5 mm needles.

Now it's time to start the Dalek. I've been postponing knitting it, out of fear of bobbles. But I guess this is the perfect pattern to learn bobbles.

  1. Pulover ti je jako lijepi rad, samo ne znam zašto si ga plela u dijelovima, slobodno si mogla i u krug jer ima uzorak samo po sredini (kad već ne voliš spajati).
    Što se tiče onog dijela koji ti nije bio jasan, trebalo je opheklati i istovremeno podizati očice za pasicu na rukavima, ali to više nije važno.

  5. Kerit je za +5, bez obzira na tvoje njurganje!!!! uglavnom, kad ja nešto ne razumijem u uputi - preskočim i napravim kako najbolje znam!

    BTW, što će ti Dalek?

  6. Hvala svima na komentarima!
    @Sandra - Dalek će biti poklon za prijateljicu, ona obožava Doctor Who-a, a ja obećala da ću joj isplesti.

  8. hvala na informaciji! joj,ne misli da smatram pletene igračke nepotrebnima - naprotiv - spremam se isplesti malenog slona - ali Dalek mi nekako nije za tebe - tebi više paše bijeli slonić, ... ili zeko!
