Has anyone tried knitting Jazz using just a single color? The stitch is sort of a herringbone. I wonder how it would come out in a single color just relying on texture. I saw someone wearing a lovely woven jacket (not jazz) that was a very subtle single color herringbone and that's what made me think of it.

I'm glad to have discovered this group and to be invited in. I have only recently discovered Hanne Falkenberg and am smitten! I just received my DaCapo kit and can't wait to begin. Just as soon as I get the store in Copenhagen to send me the pattern in English. Somehow I think this is going to be challenging enough without having to cope with Danish (or Swedish, or whatever they are) instructions!

Complete, but not exactly like the original pattern. I swapped out colours since the m*ths had eaten enough of what I had that I pitched the whole mess.

Not liking to sew things together, this became an exercise in EZ origami. That first row was almost 1000 stitches long, but it got easier every row. Knitting back and forth across the upper back turned out to be a non-issue. I shorted the sleeves since I was both going out of my mind with boredom and I never fold up sleeves anyway.
