FO: Liesl

This has been finished for ages and ages but I didn’t get around to taking photos until the weekend.

Pattern: Liesl by Ysolda Teague.

Yarn: Garn Studio Alaska – same as for Girl Friday! I think this only took about 5 or 6 balls.

Needles: 7mm.

Modifications: None but I did knit a much smaller size. I made the 34″ size because I didn’t want to button it at the front, I just wanted it to hang open at the sides. I had also read elsewhere that the feather-and-fan pattern really grows lengthwise when you block it, so I took that into consideration when I was knitting it. I knit the sleeves and body about an inch too short; they blocked out just the right length.

Again, this is just a wearable design that goes with pretty much everything. I think I’ll probably make a larger size in cotton for the summer to wear over tank tops.

  1. Very nice, love the grey colour with that pattern. It looks so wearable. The fit is perfect on you too. That pattern is great it looks so different when done in different yarns and colours.

  2. Ooh, I’ve been hesitating over trying this pattern and I think your FO might push me over the edge! Lovely choice of colour, too. Very practical but pretty, too.
