This is the Dashi Jacket I was testing knitting for Ambah O’Brien.
I can’t get a decent picture of it because I don’t have far enough to stand to get the whole thing and the lighting in the extra bedroom is awful. Once it’s dry, I will sew the zipper in . . probably Tuesday or Wednesday.
I told Vince this may be my favorite sweater/jacket I’ve ever made. He reminded me that I say that about all of them and that’s true. But, I do love this one.
I couldn’t get a zipper the exact color. The one on the left is way more red than it appears in the picture (and the sweater is way more pink). I was thinking of using the lighter pink one because I’ll probably always wear this with a white or light pink shirt under it.
Does the up close picture make you think definitely one or the other? I’m thinking light but I could be convinced otherwise.
I’d like to find a pretty zipper pull to clasp onto the zipper.
I did an I-cord bind off (you might can see it in the first picture so I’m hoping if I do a decent job of putting the zipper in, it won’t show too much but your thoughts/reasons are appreciated.
