StitchSaver Row Checker

"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."

It was the bamboo in Sueño yarn and an antique kimono that inspired this open coatigan. To showcase the simple construction of kimonos this piece is designed to be worked sideways. An openwork stitch pattern is combined with subtle, visible floats to add decorative detail and knitting interest. Two pieces are worked from the cuffs to the center of the back, then joined with a 3-needle bind off and finished with a band that caresses the neck.

HiKoo’s Sueño, DK, 80% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Bamboo

This blended Peruvian yarn is made with strength and wearability in mind. The perfect amount of spring makes knitting with it a pleasure and allows for a variety of gauges. This long-lasting yarn is washable and available in a wide range of lustrous colors.

The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
