These are my favorite sweaters.
I made this one in 2005.
I made this one in 2006.
They are both Hanne Falkenberg designs. Her ballerina, swinger jacket. They are knit completely in garter stitch, all in one piece, on size 3 needles. I must tell you her patterns are pretty confusing. The key is to always read ahead. My mother made one before me, so she sort of paved the way. (my mother is currently making her 5th Hanne, all of different designs) I am the kind of girl, that will buy 5 of the same article of clothing because I like it. I LOVE this jacket, therefore, I need more than two, right? I also tend to knit sweater coats for myself instead of sweaters. I feel that you can wear them so much more. And with all of the time and money invested, it makes it worth it.
The new one will be made out of these two colors. Ballerina 10 , kakhi, ivory, however, it is definitely green.
So, this is my new big project that I plan on having completed for the spring. I better go brew some more coffee and get started!
