#557 Patons O Canada booklet
Portage wool #6 super bulky (discontinued)
Tension: 3 1/4 sts per inch
Needles: 5 mm & 6 mm straights
A vintage tour of la Bergère knitting closet. I made this ages ago.
Many first-time techniques in knitting was learned for this project. Cables, saddle shoulders, twisted ribbing, intarsia colourwork, pocket, sewing a zipper... This was a huge learning experience for me.
Best of all, I learned that pure wool in extra bulky weight is way too warm to actually wear.
