The Frida Jacket Knitting kit is knitted in Intarsia technique using 21 colours, using a graph per garment piece; each square of the graph paper is one stitch of the knitting. The knitting kit includes Signatur 8ply wool, knitting instructions, graphs and six beautiful handmade buttons. I will add images showing the wrong side of the knitting, using a length of yarn/colour per area of knitting, without carrying the yarn at the wrong side of the knitting.
I like to create garments for everybody, which includes both chest sizes and tailoring the fit to the shoulder, additionally I add a touch of Aline into the hip. The Aline is not overly apparent, simply 4sts each side seam, adding a total of 16sts into the hip 3"/7cm.
The pattern has seven chest sizes from 92-132cm/ 36-52" with a chest ease 5-7cm/ 2-3"and hip Aline + additional 7cm/3". Largest chest 52" with 3"ease = 55" - Hip + 3" = 58".
The modeled garment base colour is Peacock, the garment pieces in Steel base which is slightly darker. I am happy to send a shade card if you wish to choose a different base colour, Light Navy will work okay. The Peacock and Steel works beautifully in the colour relationship, when the navy can flatten the colours, and this is about beautiful colours.
Kits in 2 size options, and Peacock or Steel base colour.
Small/Med: 91-104cm/ 36-41"
