Progress on the Wave of Change Jacket
I wanted to explore other knitwear designers and I came upon this Wave of Change jacket pattern by Denise Bayron.
Her classic style speaks to me. These are designs that I see lasting the test of time and I'm down for that.
I bought and immediately printed out the pattern. I couldn't wait to get started. It's knit up in bulky weight with size 10 knitting needles. This was going to be a super fast knit.
It took me 1 month before I could start knitting her up. I had my yarn, pattern and knitting needles all ready to go for this delicious moment.
We had a camping trip planned for the end of the month. This became my camping project. I was planning on doing a lot of napping, swimming, kayaking, eating of course knitting. I couldn't wait. Since I organized all the needles, yarn, pattern in a specific project box, all I had to do was grab and go. (you can watch my video on how to organize your stash here.)
And just as I predicted, this sweater was going to knit up super fast and easy. Her pattern is nicely written out, so easy to understand. She writes her patterns out like a letter that is speaking directly to you. It's so personal.
If this is your style, I highly suggest this pattern. I knit everything up except the sleeves in 4 days. That is how fast and easy it is.
