Some notes about this project:
The description in the pattern said “close-fitting.” I didn’t want close-fitting, so I made the largest size, 42″. It has 3 — 4 inches of ease for me in this size, and I am happy.
I made the body an inch longer and the sleeves an inch shorter. Also happy with this.
The size I made called for 14 skeins of the Cotton Cashmere. I used just under 12. Still happy!
Yup. All in all, happy! It’s a cute design and a well-written pattern. I give it two thumbs up!
In answer to a comments question, yes, I can see it with short sleeves.
This is the new Debbie Bliss yarn, Cathay, which I am using for a design of my own. I’ll discuss it more fully tomorrow. And be forewarned: I’ll be waxing lyrical about the yarn!
We are quite worn out here today, so we’ll sign off for now and be back tomorrow!
