Anja Elsner, aka knuettanni on Ravelry, is a skilled test knitter as well as one of my patrons, here she is wearing her stunning Eah. Anja has been knitting for more than 45 years and learned as a child from her grandmother in Germany. She knitted Eah in Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in size Large using a 4.5 mm/US 7 needle to obtain the 20 stitches and 30 rows gauge in stockinette stitch. Instead of the I-cord band at the bottom, she chose to work a garter stitch band.
The hood on my sample was generous so Anja decided to work a number of decreases directly from the pick up line. I had the test knitters help me make a straighter hood version for the pattern so that you can choose how which option to knit.
Here is Anja’s hood from behind. I love how well it fits Anja and the beautiful colour of it! Thank you so much!
An acronym for each way is this casually fitted cabled hoodie adorned by a herringbone cable on the front, the back and the sleeves. Eah ends in a hood with the cable at the back and an I-cord edge. The pullover is knitted in the divine hand dyed Walk Collection Merino Sportweight yarn held together with the Kid Mohair Lace, in pieces and seamed for the ultimate fit.
