I have been working on design #37 Lace Coat by Lisa Daehlin from Vogue Knitting Crochet 2012 magazine. I finished the coat for now but I am not satisfied with the results. I will be working on it further, probably sometime later after figuring out what I need to do.
I used beautiful Lang Jawoll Magic yarn in 84-18, black and dark green mix. The yarn is very loosely plied, almost single to my eye.; I used 5.5 mm crochet hook and 25mm knitting circular needles mostly, but used a smaller hook for picking up loops.
What I like about the coat is the very lacy main fabric. What I do not like is the front bands. The neck and the bottom edgings are okay as they are, although I would like to have a bit firmer feel along the neck. In order to re-do front bands, I will need to remove the neck band and the last row of the bottom band since they were applied after front bands were completed. Bummer! I am going to leave the coat on the dress form for now.
