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.

Mermaid Jacket

My LYS is hosting a monthly Hanne Falkenberg support group.  They call it a support group, I call it a knit along -- either way it's loads of fun.  Six of us attended the first meeting -- 2 Mermaid Jackets, a Promanade Shawl, a Dacapo, a Lastrada, and a Babette.  Hanne's designs offer lots and lots of garter stitch mixed with ingenious construction and shaping.  Last year I finished a Promanade Shawl and this time around I'm tackling a Mermaid Jacket.

The Mermaid Jacket is knit from side to side and features short rowed gussets, which cause the hem of the jacket to flare out.
