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.
You look so cute and cosy here!
Hahaha, I am pretty warm! The sitting room gets so cold once the sun goes down that blankets are basically mandatory evening wear. xxx
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
I am always so excited when I see the Koselig Blanket out in the wild! So glad you had fun knitting it. I adore the colour you chose too ☺ x
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
