Oh my. This is lovely. The weight, the way it lays across my collarbone, the wavy wonderfulness of it all. You know you’ve hit a great pattern when you put it on and your first thought is all the color combinations you want to make next!
One word of caution: Watch the upper edge! Because I am picky about bumpy edges next to my skin, I did a selvege edge across the top, and that cost me a lot of elasticity where I need it most. Had I left it according to the pattern, the neck hole would have been stretchier.
As it was, I needed to do a lot of…persuading…to get the thing over my head. I spent so much time heeding the instructions to “aggressively block” the lower edge to get the bell shape right that I probably didn’t get as “aggressive” with the top edge as I should have.
But isn’t it wonderful? Don’t you want one? Get yourself down to Austin and to The Knitting Nest and get one! Thanks, Stacy, for a truly splendid outcome—well worth the effort!
