All In the Details

Hanne Falkenberg's designs feature garter stitch, inovative construction, and details -- ah, the details, love the details.  A gusset here, an i-cord edging there, and short-rows, short rows everywhere.  Never a dull moment!

Hanne's Mermaid Jacket is a wonder of construction and details.

This scramble and unscramble script is fun!

Those photos, I can't explain it, something in a knitter's psyche, but they move me - in pieces or whole. I _love_ the kit color!

you are killing me with the speed and ease with which you got this far!! I got to start mine. this is very inspiring.

Very intriguing! I'm always tempted by Hanne Falkenberg's design, if only they're more affordable!

The colors are beautiful, and I wish I could look closer and examine all of the details.
Now I think I'll go have some eggs, scrambled perhaps?

I love Mermaid. I'd love to knit it.

But can you tell me what she uses for measurements for her sizes? I can't find them anywhere on her site, and, frankly, since every designer seems to use different measurements, S, M, L, XL is pretty useless!

Everytime I see this pattern in an add, I think that I should buy it to knit but then I buckle and don't buy it. It looks so pretty on and even lovlier on the needles. Wow!

Wow, the Mermaid Jacket is divine!

How come your Feb 10, 9, 8, etc. posts aren;t turning up here, but I can access them from Mason-Dixon's blog. I am confused.

I love *love* this jacket! I cannot wait to see how it looks when worn.

Posted by: Brandy | Feb 14, 2007 6:38:04 AM

So clever! Love the color!

Very beautiful! Fun scramble effect! I like how in knitting techniques like short rows can take the place of awkward convex-concave seeming found in sewing.

Color me ditzy! At first glance, I thought I was seeing a bunch of swatches. But then I unscrambled... So beautiful. And wow! again on your swatching. Not only are you keeping up so nicely, but you inspire and and give pointers. Thank you.

Wow! That's really beautiful - I think you picked my very favorite colors for your jacket. I'm looking forward to seeing it worn (I bet you are too) :)

two words: ummy nummy

Gorgeous! I still haven't had the time to put my Mermaid in the lineup (Stitches West coming up, bits of 15 UFOs already scattered throughout the house, yadda yadda) so I'm enjoying yours!

Posted by: Sarah | Feb 14, 2007 12:14:42 PM

OMG. i love this!

Posted by: D R E W | Feb 14, 2007 12:54:45 PM

It's so beautiful! I am envious! I've been trying to find someone who wants to get rid of just their pattern, because I don't think any of the available colorways would be particularly flattering on me, and I have been just dying to knit this. Every new one I see makes me want to more. I can't wait to see yours completed! I adore the greens, though I could never wear them. The scramble and unscramble thingy is really neat, too.

You get my badge for bravery in tackling the HF jacket - good golly! what a gorgeous piece of knitting. And what a wonderfully engaging post - you make us work to get the real deal (hee-hee).

Posted by: Terry | Feb 15, 2007 6:09:16 AM

I adore this pattern, you are doing a fabulous job with it.

Would anyone be able to send me a copy of this mermaid patter? I want to knit it in my wool and can't buy it in Australia?

Posted by: Linda L | Mar 29, 2007 2:47:58 PM

Hi, don't worry about that last message as I bought it eventually. Can anyone help me with the gusset? Do I have to stagger the wrapped stitches as the pattern seems to put one wrapped stitch on another and then I have to knit a stitch and 2 wraps together? (I am doing the medium) or am I reading the pattern incorrectly?

Thank you for making such a killer blog. I come here all the time and the floor here with fresh information.
