Design: Tudor

Swingcoats are commenced as a one-size pattern, decreases create sizing with length and size variations. Knitting instructions are accompanied by A3 graphs: two graphs for the body and one for the sleeve. Graphs are large and bold in black-and-white for easy use. The graphs show the design of leaves, each square being a stitch, also decreased stitches to be worked to shape the coat. As with many of Jane's designs the styling and shaping is quite unique and extremely rewarding.

Technique: Intarsia

Tension: 22.5sts to 10cm om 4mm ndls

Intarasia and Fairisle. Two different techniques. Fairisle is the technique of carrying yarn behind stitches whilst working a second color. Traditionally used for pattern repeats. It should only be used for small areas of color within picture knitting. In this case I use it on the veins of the leaves, carrying the main color of the leaf behind the color of the stem. This is quite easy over 1 or 2 stitches of the stems. See Knitting techniques.
