…. braucht ein bisschen laenger bei mir. Diese Jacke fuer’s Toechterchen habe ich im November 2012 angeschlagen, im Januar 2013 war sie fertig. Es fehlte nur noch der Reissverschluss, der auch gekauft war. Da die Jacke damals noch etwas zu gross war, lag sie bis vor kurzem im Strickkorb. Da ich mit dem Reissverschluss, den ich gekauft hatte, nicht so ganz zufrieden war, hatte ich auch Knoepfe gekauft. Die habe ich nicht angenaeht, weil ich dazu ja auch noch Schlaufen haette haekeln muessen ;-). Und dann hat Tina einen “Reissverschluss fuer Stricksachen” vorgestellt. Den habe ich gleich bestellt – und vor ein paar Tagen auch eingenaeht. Da er dieses lockere Band hat, ging das Einnaehen mit dem Originalgarn und einer spitzen Wollnadel ganz einfach, und ich war auch recht schnell fertig. Und Toechterchen ging am naechsten Tag ganz stolz mit einer “neuen” Jacke in die Vorschule.

… take a bit longer in this house. I cast on this cardigan in November 2012, and was done with it in January 2013. I just had to sew in the zipper (which I had already bought). As the cardigan was still a bit big then, it passed its time in my knitting basket until a few weeks ago. As I was not really happy with the zipper I had bought, I considered sewing on buttons (but that would have meant to crochet loops as well). Serendipitously, Tina introduced a zipper specifically meant for knitted items. I immediately ordered it, and sewed it in a few days later. As the zipper has a band that is more loosely woven as an ordinary zipper band, it was very easy (and quick) to sew it in by hand with the original yarn and a pointed darning needle. And my daughter left for preschool the next day with a “new” cardigan.

    Awww…how cute…and not just the jacket 😉 The jacket fits her really well. I like the hoodie and the pattern on the back going all the way up. Was well worth the effort 😉

      More than cute 😉

      I really liked the pattern – it exists also in baby/toddler size!

        Tempting…very tempting 😎 I haven’t knitted anything lately 😦 With the all day nausea I’m just glad to get done what I need to get done. Edging towards the 2nd trimester where I hopefully will have some relief from it. Is the pattern on Ravelry?

      • 4. streepie  |  March 24, 2014 at 13:48

        yes, the pattern is on ravelry – here

        more info here

        And it’s a seamless knit, always a bonus in my book.

        Great to hear that you are edging towards the 2nd trimester! In theory, the nausea should lessen then, but that’s the theory.

        Great! Thanks for the links 🙂 And, yes, let’s hope the theory will come true very soon 😉

    Wunderschön! Inklusive Erfahrungsbericht zum Reißverschluss – besser geht’s ja kaum. Muss ich also auch mal ausprobieren – denn Reißverschluss in Stricksachen ist so praktisch! Und so hübsch!
