I’ve had this project finished for a couple of weeks, but haven’t had a chance to blog about it. For this I used the Brier Run alpaca I got for Christmas, and I think it was a good choice. I’m really into wool/silk blend yarns right now—the silk just gives it extra softness and texture, I think.
This pattern was easy and fun to do. But I did add several mods:
- I added ribbing on the neck, sleeves, and hem
- I added sleeves
- I added vertical bust darts
I think that’s it. I’d definitely knit this again, probably short sleeved, and use it as a layering piece.
