Catalogue du Tricot Numero Trois (Beaucoup des Photos)

J’examine mon catalogue “Facile A Tricoter No. 490.”  Les projets dans ce catalogue sont elementaires, mais je suis sure que les pulls sont confortables!

When I originally saw this issue of Phildar, I passed over it because some of the designs were so simple, and it’s probably easy to reverse engineer a lot of the patterns in this issue with the yarns I have in my stash.  But, with such a low price, why go to that trouble?  In some instances, I just wanted the pattern to learn how to knit a particular element of a sweater.  This is the magazine that is the subject of this post:

I like the rolled collar on this sweater, plus it looks comfy.  I just can’t tell if the sleeves are rolled up or if it’s a part of the design of the sweater.  I think I would modify the sleeves if it was a result of sweater design.

The next sweater to catch my eye was this simple crew neck.  Sure, the reverse stockinette makes the stripes interesting.  I suppose I could have found a way to make this for myself without the pattern.  But it’s still nice to have the pattern.

It’s really hard to see the details in this sweater in the online photo.  And generally I don’t like bell sleeves, so that’s something I’d change.  I am at school right now, so I don’t have the magazine in front of me, but I believe the top of the sweater is ribbed to the point where an empire waistline would be.  That’s the part that I like, though I’m not sure it would be the greatest look for me.

I like this jacket eventually I’d like to make something like this for myself, but I don’t see knitting this project in my intermediate future.  I’m glad I have this pattern now.  Rolled sleeves again, though.  If it’s part of the design I will need to change it.

I like this sweater, with the long placket in the front.  One of the contenders for an actual yarn purchase from Phildar, though I decided not to do it at the last minute.

Ah, this top is so cute!  I wish I had the arms to wear it!  I’m not sure how nice this design would look with the sleeves lengthened, at least to the elbow.

I like this tank because of the gathering detail at the bust.  I’d like to learn how to do that so I could incorporate that design element into other projects.  There was a summer issue a few years ago that had a tank with similar detail – but I didn’t jump on it fast enough, it sold out pretty quickly.  Hmmm, maybe I should check Knit ‘n Tyme to see if they have the issue I’m talking about.

I liked other designs in this issue – there was nothing I really hated.  The projects are admittedly easy, as promised by the title.  I normally like the Phildar magazines for their stitch patterns and their garment shaping.  So buying this issue was a departure for me.  But at 1.49 Euro, it’s kind of a bargain.  So into my library it goes!
