I am still playing with my new bind off method … Trying out a few new things …

kazual mod6-

And this is the result: Kazual, a ‘casual’ pullover worked top down and seamlessly in the round.

It starts at the top with a welted cast on. It features striped welts on the shoulders …

and elbows …

and it has two small pockets.

The welts are very easy to make: no difficult intarsia. Only one color is worked per row. You never need to join to the main color in the same row.
There are a few ends to weave in, but that shouldn’t scare you off: they are very easily hidden in the welts.

The body has a slight A-line adding up to the relaxed, ‘casual’ feel and the cuffs and hems have a ‘minimal finished look’ using the special bind off method.

Everything you need to successfully finish your Kazual is included, no need to search on the web:

  • photo tutorials to work the striped welts and the special cast on technique
  • tutorials for short rows and jogless stripes.

… soble …

Soble : 2 patterns with the same large ribbed and cabled design: both feature a large doubled boatneck collar and pockets.

soble tunic detail2soble cardi detail 2

The ribbed stitches of the cable panel are worked through the back loop and that gives it their pronounced striped look. It is harder to see on the red tunic (that color is very difficult to capture on photo, it is a very deep rich red from Wollmeise: dunkele Kirsche in DK weight)

Soble cardigan

soble cardi mod

Soble cardi is a cardigan worked seamlessly from the top down in 1 piece, with a raglan sleeve inset and pockets. It features a large doubled boatneck collar in twisted ribbing.The large cabled panels with the buttonbands are slightly offset. Smaller cable panels figure on the sleeves and the back.
