The Beth Coat

Posted in Cardigan/Jumpers, Hats/Hoods/Scarves, Knitting with tags , , , , , , on February 3, 2014 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I have wanted to knit this jacket/coat for a long time now, ever since my mom knitted hers 2 years ago. I wanted to do a test run so I was lucky that she had loads of chunky wool she didn’t want anymore.

The pattern is worked in double moss stitch so it’s textured and warm, I also like the A line shape and bell shaped sleeves. Here’s a link to the book/pattern 

I’m showcasing my new bobble hat in the photos too, it’s from the same pattern I made the square hats in my last post.

Here is photographic proof!

Jacket Front

Overlapped split in sleeves, I’ll sew wooden buttons there

I will be looking for some wooden buttons to tie it all together, 3 on the front and 1 on each sleeve.

I made it shorter than the pattern requires

I wore this today and my hairdresser wants a longer version this jacket, which is great! I’m a fast knitter so I’m always looking for something new to do (this took me between 2-3 weeks to make) and I want to make a purple version for myself too.

I should start on sewing a jacket at some point, one step at a time!

Baltic Hat

Posted in Hats/Hoods/Scarves, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2014 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I was in need (or want) of an easy chunky hat pattern as I haven’t knitted for a while and I wanted a thick beanie.

As I didn’t have any chunky wool for this pattern I did the usual and twisted two skeins of double knitting together so it added up to chunky…. my mom taught me this trick. I’m using the same trick for a jumper I’m knitting but with black and purple instead of one solid colour.

Back to the hat! I opted for this beanie that is knitted with Baltic yarn in the pic, hence why it is named the baltic hat in the Bergere De France booklet I found it in.

Here’s my version

Ribbed Hat

I used the sea shell effect on Js’ phone in this photo.  It’s bright red really

My mom has bought some really cute super chunky hat patterns that I want to make, they have ears and pompoms… how can I resist?!

Stay tuned for those

Hi All,

I have completed my version of this hat a while ago and posted a photo on Facebook.

I have worn it a lot now and had an order for one at my work place!

The book is from my local library so I better get a move on with it!
