Had to get the pattern in an impulse and because it was 30% off. Like the contrasting stripes and plan to knit it during our hiking holidays in Lechtal, hence the name.

Did NOT do the provisional cast-on (to fiddly for me…) but just picked up stitches from cast on edge. I knitted 2 rows before the eylet row, so it does not sit exactly on the colour change, but that is ok with me.

Finished fronts today.
Picked up 91 stitches for sleeves 3 in 4 rows

July 20, 2019

Finished first sleeve. Decreased to 64 stitches and knit it mainly in white as I only have 3 of the green.balls . Sleeve is currently about 7/8 length.

July 21, 2019

Finished both sleeves
Started body again

July 25, 2019

Happily knitting along at the body (with 38 degrees celsius outside, but so far it is ok inside our house…)

Working on row 28 at the moment (yes, I am actually counting rows, something I very rarely do!)

July 27, 2019

Finished last green ball at 44 cm. Now to continue with white

July 28, 2019

Finished body and picked up & knit stitches for front bands. Did the bottom in the dark green as planned and will use white for the front band just because that is what I have most left of.

July 30, 2019

Finished knitting! Used a 3,5 mm needle for the front band and only noticed then that what I thought was 3,5 mm for the main body actually was 4 mm, so the finshed garment is more on the wide side, but still totally wearable.

Currently, the bottom hem flips up a little, but I hope that will change with blocking. Now to sew in ends…

August 1, 2019

Took in-wear photos after blocking - it grew a little and is now a bit on the wide side, but I still like it.

Nevertheless, I might have it tried on by some more voluptous members of my family - if it fits them better and they like it, I might also give it away…

I really like the green colour, I think it suits me very well!
