Debbie Bliss Unstructured Coat February 18, 2007

imgp3236.JPGimgp3238.JPG This is my current favourite WIP. Its the unstructured coat from the Debbie Bliss Simply Soft book (although I’m working from a pattern in an old copy of Simply Knitting).

Its made in D.B. Cashmerino Astrakhan which is just sooo soft, and it creates a very stretchy fabric with a nice drape. I went for this lovely mossy green colour as green is my all time favouite colour. The front pieces are worked on a long circular needle from the front edge to the side seam, I’ve completed the right front and am now on the left front. It’s not the fastest yarn to knit up, but the boucle effect creates a wonderfully textured fabric, I can’t wait to get it finished.
