Totally Juliet

Juliet

Juliet Back

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky, about 9 skeins
Needles: 10 1/2, 13’s to BO
Mods: CO for the Medium but knit the amount of increases for a size small. I bound off for the sleeves but had too little room and the wrong number of stitches. So I used the backward loop cast on to add five stitches under each arm when I started to work the body, this also gave me the correct number for the lace portion. I knit in garter stitch for 3.5 inches before starting the lace pattern. I made a few boo boo’s on one panel, but I got in synch with the pattern right after so I didn’t screw up the rest of the knit.
Loved it: Immediately. I may love this more than anything I have ever (tried to) knit for myself. I wore it all day. I’m glad I re-claimed this yarn from a doomed project.

BTW it was freezing there.

  1. Totally Fabulous, I love it. I’m really feeling the chocolate browns for this fall for some reason.p.s. Thanks for showing me that I’m not the only one with a tattoo like that. Once my Nana saw mine she was like “Do you think you’re gonna forget your name or something?”

  2. i love harlem purl’s nana.this is the best juliet i’ve seen yet. i may be in touch later about a podcast :) i’m working on developing one called “what are you wearing?” that blends the best of the sexy knitters club and “what not to wear.” it’s all about choosing the right pattern, the right yarn, the right color, and making it in the right size and fit, and this nailed it!
