Getting Koselig

What do you think?

  • Lovely, I have been tempted to knit their cosy coat too, buts am worried about the weight and also whether it will stretch out of shape. How do you find it?

    • Hmmm. I have made the cross country coat, although I have to admit I didn’t end up wearing it very often so I’ve just finished re-knitting the yarn into a poncho instead! I didn’t find stretching to be too much of an issue, as the crazy sexy wool knits up into a surprisingly light fabric. But I should add that mine ended up being more of an indoor dressing gown than an outdoor coat, so it didn’t really get put through its paces that much!

  • Knitting and mulled wine sounds like heaven! I reeeeally want to make one of those super chunky knit blankets but the materials are a little pricey so for now I just dream about it and pin inspiration 🙂 Beautiful work. I really like the herringbone stitch.

    • Thank you! I ummed and ahhhed (and saved my pennies!) before buying this one – I’d been lusting after a chunky knit blanket on pinterest for ages. The price means that this will probably be the last one I make for a little while, but it was a really satisfying project.

  • Hi, I really love your blanket. I bought the pattern from WATG last week. May I ask whether you slipped your stitches knit or purl-wise? The reason I ask is that my written pattern instructions just say ‘slip 1 stitch’ and knitting reference books state that if the direction is not specified you should slip purl-wise. However, the video tutorial slips stitches knit wise.
    Thank you, Liz

    • Oh wow, thank you so much for dropping by! I’d been wanting to make a knitted blanket for ages, and the combination of yarn and pattern was too good to pass up – Koselig is perfect for chilly nights in front of the telly with wine and knitting :). The herringbone stitch pattern is gorgeous, I’ve not knitted anything like it before and the resulting fabric is lush. xx
