Capecho da Vogue - Vogue’s Capecho

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)

Este modelo saiu na capa da revista VogueKnitting Inverno06/07 e foi um grande sucesso nessa altura.

A minha versão é ligeiramente diferente pois acrescentei meio pentágono debaixo dos braços (o modelo é todo feito à base de rosetas em forma de pentágono). Tricotei o tamanho mais pequeno com agulhas 5.5mm e 8 novelos de 100g de Rosarios 4 Cordatta Print. Adorei o efeito final e estou a planear fazê-lo outra vez em branco sujo. Como é óbvio, este modelo tem direitos de autor e não posso divulgar a receita, mas podem adquiri-la aqui.

Os meus agradecimentos à May (ela sabe porquê!)


I think for most of you this model doesn’t need introducing; it’s from Vogue Knitting Winter06/07 and was a huge hit when the magazine came out.

My version is slightly modified because I added half a pentagon under the sleeves (it felt like something was missing there). I knitted the smallest size using US9 needles and 8 skeins (100g each) of Rosarios 4 Cordatta Print. I really love how it came out and I plan on knitting this model again using off-white yarn. This model is now available for sale here.

Do you knit in your sleep? You keep pumping out some awesome knitted pieces. The green color is fabulous.

Vicki W said...

That green color is fabulous - as is the sweater! Just beautiful and very flattering.

paco peralta said...

ahhh...Tany, que modelo tan original, de veras. Es estupendo para acompañar cualquier vestido. Enhorabuena. Abrazos, Paco

Wow! Wow! Wow!

cidell said...

ARGH!! You make me want to get better at knitting so quickly. I 'm with Christina... do you knit in your sleep :) Beautiful and inspiring as always.

Frida said...

The stitch pattern looks very interesting. I like your choices of knitting patterns, they are always intriguing.

Miss Linda said...

Oh, it's just lovely! That shade of green flatters you, and it will also be very beautiful in ivory!

Vicki said...

Fabulous. Black and strong colours look so good on you!

Myra said...

Absolutely beautiful.

Adrienne said...

I love it!

Rachel said...

That is GORGEOUS!!! I just love your blog. It is one of my favorites because you show detailed steps of your projects and that helps me alot. I don't knit, but I saw that Vogue pattern awhile ago and I wanted to see it made up. Knitting is next on my list to learn, though.

Summerset said...

LOL! You are just *not* going to believe this, but I bought that magazine when it first came out with the intention of (you guessed it!) making that very sweater! I haven't had time to knit for several years, but I suppose I'll have to make time in 2009! We have been thinking way too much alike recently. I love the green much better than the beige/grey original and looks fabulous with your coloring.

Dei said...

This is absolutely amazing! I love the rich emerald green and the pattern. You have styled it just right!

Sigrid said...

Super. Where do you find the time? do you knit on your way to work?

Tini said...

Amazing. I mean I have the feeling of beeing productive at the moment but you do SEW AND KNIT so many beautiful things, that I'm sitting here with my mouth gaping wide open. I bet you are the reasons why some of your readers strive to be better sewists and knitters!

KayB said...

Oh Tany, honestly, where do you find the time? But you're probably more disciplined (well, more than I am most definitely). Great top, though, I like the two-tone effect.

Miss Sewing said...

Preciosa rebeca!!!Me encanta el color verde en diferentes tonos, muy bonitos. Excelente trabajo!!

Lori said...

Wow, what a gorgeous sweater.

Bunny said...

Exquisite sweater. The quality AND quantity of your sewing output never ceases to amaze me.

Shannon said...

That sweater is gorgeous! Love it.

Amanda S. said...

Just Gorgeous! You are getting so much accomplished lately! I need to kick it in gear as well. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

Nancy (nanflan) said...

Beautiful!

Celina said...

Mais uma peça lindíssima. Adoro esse verde, realça o ponto. Mas como também sou fã de branco, acho que vai ficar igualmente bonita na nova versão. Por favor, conta-nos, quanto tempo levaste a tricotá-lo? Quando é que tricotas, nos intervalos da costura? Na hora de almoço? Nos transportes? Na fila do supermercado? Pleeeaase, conta-nos o teu segredo!

I cannot knit but can nonetheless appreviate something truly unique, and this one is that. The color is very pretty on you as well.

Dana said...

What a beautiful sweater!

Lory said...

I have to get on board with the knitting! All I can do is scarves, I'm behind, lol. As always, beautiful work, you look beautiful. :):):)

Hugs,

margi said...

Very beautiful! I look forward to seeing the off-white one when you are done. Hugs.

designdreamer said...

Tany,
When I grow up, I want to knit and sew just like you!!!
Only problem is, I'm probably close to being old enough to be your mom!
You DID inspire me to make that orange one. I'm hoping to be able to wear it NEXT winter - our season to wear such things will be over by the end of January, and I'm a little out of practice, and I'm just not as FAST as you! I'm not sure anyone is.

Mamã Martinho said...

Este modelo fica-te mesmo muito bem!

PS- Em relação às revistas, envio-te alguma?

Cennetta said...

Lovely. Perfect color and style. You have been busy, lady. Everything is gorgeous.

May said...

I love your version!! You look very cute in it. Congratulations!
This pattern is really nice and intriguing but requires a bit of tinkering isn't it? Yours turned out really nice and wearable. Perhaps, I will try once again to make one for me. :)

Ana Carina said...

Bem...Bem...Bem...
(continuo sem palavras...)

É muito bonito este modelo. Fico particularmente surpreendida por ser em rosetas tricotadas em forma de croché e cheia de torcidos...pentagonos de croché é fácil...agora tr tricô e ainda mais torcidos...isso é que é imaginação do autor!!!

É muito invulgar e é mais uma linda peça para o teu guarda-roupa.

Ana Carina said...

....em forma de pentágonos...

(é o que dá...tal é o espanto!)

CBH-Scrapbook Freebies Search said...

That is gorgeous!!! I cannot even imagine the amount of time you spent to make it. It is an art piece. Thanks for sharing.

LauraLo said...

Beautiful! And the colour is to die for, one of the most beautiful shades of green I've ever seen. Your hair is longer, you seem to have lost weight... you look absolutely gorgeous!
