Ugh. Finally finished. I had completed the colorwork section and realized it was way too big, not to mention the stranded part looked terrible. I knew my gauge was slightly larger than pattern, but thought I could make it slouchy. Frogged everything and went from US 7 to US 6 needles.

Every time I think I’ve got this colorwork business down, I get my butt kicked hard. Had to google some tips. Made sure on the second attempt to go really slow and make sure I had long floats. Not there yet, but I might be getting better. Really have no idea why my letter “B” is messed up. It looked terrible on the first attempt so I used the “B” from the chart below. Still not right.

Guessing at yardage. Thought I had a full skein of blue, but apparently not.


Not sure why this wasn’t put into the pattern, but here’s how I did the increase round right before the colorwork section.

K25, M1, K25, M1, K25, M1, K25 (3 stitches increased)
