Flaming June Caridgan

Flaming June Is a wonderful light summery cardigan.

In the sample here knit up in two different colours just like in the pattern written by Cheryl Niamath on Raverly.
 The Hemp is a perfect material but so would be any Linen. A cool and fun way to use different materials for knitting
Love how this cardigan looks and wears too. Yes it is knit with Hemp. Some of you may not like the roughness of this material. Hemp is mostly used for string or ropes but this is a much finer and I say softer version of it.

However it does not give so knitting with it is a bit of a challenge. You do have to knit a swatch as my gauge was off by at 4 stitches so I still knit by pattern but went down with my needle size to a 3.5mm. Some Ravelry posts even have used a 2mm needle size to get the correct gauge.. I also had to knit the sleeves shorter as I was reading on some sites it does stretch a bit. Well I have to say that is correct as mine stretched in length by at least 3 inches.

The sleeves have a interesting point to the front of your hand

I had 7 skeins of Hemp for Knitting hemp3LUX of that I used 6 in Brick and 1 in Pumpkin 
The next one I will knit will be about 3 -4 inches shorter as I am not that tall.
IMG_4323Flaming Juni ist ein wunderbare, sommerliche und leichte Strickjacke. Im Bild hier strickte ich sie mit zwei verschiedenen Farben wie im Muster geschrieben von Cheryl Niamath auf Raverly.
Das Hanf das ich dazu benutzte heisst “Hanf3LUX”  ist ein perfektes Material. Doch könte man dazu auch Linen brauchen.

Both sides of the cardigan have the same point as the sleeves. So very fun and stylish for this summer

  Diese Strickjacke hat einen schönen, leichten Hang hat beim Tragen. Einige von Euch mögen die Rauheit von diesem Hanf nicht. Hanf ist überwiegend für Schnur oder Seile gebraucht. Hier etwas feiner  und ich sage weichere Version. Doch muss ich ehrlich sagen das stricken mit Hanf ist nicht das einfachste.  Bestimmt musst Du ein Muster stricken. Ich musste runter mit der Nadel Grösse zu 3.5mm einige mussten sogar zu einer 2mm Nadel grösse gehen. Auch zieht sich die Jacke in die Länge beim Tragen. So musste ich die Ärmel etliches kürzer stricken. 

Another version one could knit is a Vest instead of the cardigan. You will only need 5 skeins of Hemp then.

Ganze 7 Stränge von “Hanf3LUX”  verstrickt in Farben 6 Kneueln “Backstein” und 1 in “Kürbis”
die nächste Jacke werde ich ca. 15cm kürzer stricken da ich nicht so gross bin
