Notes

I enjoyed knitting this lovely pattern by roko as a travel project while my staying in Japan.
I love the result so much and so does my mum!!
She tried it on and She really loves it!
My Lull will be hers at last. I am happy too!

Very very light and transparent.

  • Cable CO
  • Worked with two stranded down to beg of Gathered sts. From on Gathered sts rnd,I used only one strand, and instead of kfb, increased number of sts by knitting 2sts out of 1 previous st along inc section of the pattern. More sts than the pattern, intendeing to have more flare.
  • 216 sts for Body. Put a new yarn and knit 2 strands together and k2rnds, work the lace chart 3 times omitting purl rnds. Suspended BO
  • Body length from underarm to the bottom: 52cm
  • Sleeve length from underarm:17cm (ktbl, k2, k2 from previous 1st, k5 rnds, k3, kfb, k17rnds, k3, k2tog, k5rnds, k2, k2tog, put a new yarn and knit 2 strands together and k2rnds, work the lace chart twice omitting purl rnds. Suspended BO)

03/10 ついに完成!母が気に入ってくれまして、贈呈決定!
12/09 確信はなかったけど、飛行機の中で編めるかもっと思って出発直前で在庫糸をごしょごしょ。しゅくしゅくと始めました。
2本取り。最初は針8号。これは少しだらしない編み目。7号に変えて、メリヤスとガーターのゲージをとり、編み目とにらめっこ。
これならいい!2本取りで7号でキツメにSサイズでGO!
10段ほど進む。良い感じ。

夕方、義理のお姉さんが会いに来てくれる。悩みを告白。
「針は没収されるはずっ」ということで、悩みすっきり。機内編みは惜しくも断念。く~お空で編みたかった~~

糸の残量の懸念と腰までひらりと伸ばしたいなとの妄想のため、
プランAを考えてみる。
ヨークの後は、一本取りにしてみてはどうか。
果たして、日本で編み物はできるのか…わなわな
Plan A: York: Yarn held double with JP7 (4.2mm). Knit tight for a close fit. (Maybe) after york, change to a single-stranded.
