A finished object

Not one of my predictions but this one will do...

Modelled by young man

Pattern details

Pattern: Zipped jacket

Source: Special family knits by Debbie Bliss

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cotton DK in Navy and turquoise blue(s)

Needles: 3.25 and 4.00mm

Began: September 2007

Finished: October 2007

Comments: Simple classic design updated for today. Simple pattern. Lovely to knit. I thought I would have to alter the pattern, but did not. I have given young man some growing space (not much now I've seen it on him). He loves it and is virtually living in it. I would recommend the book. It's lovely and covers many different yarns - most of them are cotton based which is a bonus for me!!

I will try and get some more pictures but someone is camera shy at the moment!

It looks fantastic. I much prefer the colors you used than the contrast in the book too. I will definately need to knit my son one too, although he is 13 he is starting to wear men's sized clothes. I am sure you will be able to knit another one in a few year's time for him too.

He looks great. Amazing how tall he has grown.
Isn't it great that he still loves to wear handknits!
