I am going to try to keep a record of my progress on Tricot. Pix, blog entries, the whole shebang. If I work on it; I’ll record it.

Or at least that’s my plan now.

So here we are at the beginning. I’ve swatched and made gauge, and I’ve started knitting up the back. I’m using Lion Brand® Cotton Ease in Blueberry (main color) and Pineapple (the stripes). The needles are simply Susan Bates (aluminum) circs in sizes US #6 and #8.

The pattern only calls for three rows of 2×2 ribbing, but I’d like a little more length, thank you. So I add some more rows to that and have worked the stockinette stitch up to the decreases (and then stopped for the night).

Look for more to come… soon!


Update:

Per request of a few, let me define “tricot” and give you a glimpse of what the finished product will (hopefully) look like. tri┬Ěcot n. A plain, warp-knitted cloth of any of various yarns. French, from tricoter, to knit.

The description at MagKnits calls it ‘a sporty jersey-style sweater for the stylish soccer mom’ and the pix can be seen here.

So does that give y’all a better idea of it? And for any lingering questions or curiosity, you can check out the tricotalong site. Enjoy!
