I’ve been working diligently on the Sunrise Circle Jacket for about a month now. Some days I don’t get to work on it at all, but when I DO it moves along quite quickly. I’ve finished the back and I’m more than half finished with the sleeve/front piece. This jacket is very interesting to knit as the construction is really different from a “normal” sweater. The sleeve and front are worked together as one piece and the front is knit as a kind of half circle, increasing as you go. I hope to be finished with it in another four weeks!
The top part of the photo is the sleeve, then you can see where the raglan sleeve decreases start and the front circle begins.
Above is a close up of the front with the increases scattered throughout, making an ever larger half circle.
I’m making this with Rowan Summer Tweed which is 50/50 cotton/silk. It makes for a kind of stiff fabric, but it’s really pretty and the stiffness I think is perfect for this kind of shaped jacket. I can’t wait to wear it!
