Gauge in Diamond Seed stitch pattern : 19sts x 24 rows = 4”
This jacket is greatly inspired by the jacket Claire Bennet was wearing in an episode of the teleserie Heroes. After surfing on the web and came back empty handed, I decided to give it a try : the result is beyond my expectation!
Knitted with a thick simple plied aran weight yarn, this jacket gives you the comfort and the warmness you need during the cold season.
There is a link for purchasing via my Etsy boutique!
I want to clarify the Diamond Seed Stitch pattern : there is no row 9. The pattern is knitted on 8 row.
PLEASE NOTE!! I was comfortably watching TV, and I realized I had forgot to mention how many skeins are needed for each size :
34”-38” : at least 7 skeins
42” : at least 8 skeins
46”-50” : 9-10 skeins.
I did the 38” size, so I don’t have any precise yardage for the other sizes. It would be really appreciated if you can communicate me the yardage you used! Thank you!
I had a comment about the Stockinette st gauge.
I know that Berroco Peruvia is an Aran weight yarn and that it is suppose to be knit with US 8 to 10 needles.
I wanted a thick and warm end fabric, so I knitted the jacket with smaller needles (US 8). It gave me a gauge of 20sts x 28rows for 4”x4”.
Maybe I am a loose knitter.
