I do apologise to anyone who has been waiting for next installment of Work-Appropriate Knitting and getting impatient. Life seems to have taken over around here recently.
Anyway, here’s something for you all to chew on. A cardigan-jacket with the catchiest name ever (I lie): DROPS 123-6 Fitted jacket in stocking st with cables in ”Alpaca”. I’m not sure why “Alpaca” needs its own quotation marks – I mean, I know that DROPS produce a yarn entitled such, but you wouldn’t misunderstand the title if they just said alpaca. I digress.
I really like the subtle collar, the relatively structured fit, and the simple interest of the matching cables. If I were to make this, I would customise it to mimic an actual suit jacket as much as possible: neutral colour, three buttonholes with large-ish matching buttons, and hip length rather than the standard cardigan length that DROPS have chosen. As such I’m choosing “Yes, with modifications” on the poll below.
Will I make this? Well, it’s an entire jacket in 4-ply…
