Project info
Breathing Space by Veera Välimäki
M (38")
Needles & yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm
1,811 yards
Wollelfe Merino Silk Gradient
617 yards in stash
0.76 skeins = 498.7 yards (456.0 meters), 114 grams
madelinetosh Dandelion
4.04 skeins = 1313.0 yards (1200.6 meters)

Making this for MadMay 2016 using Dandelion and for the stripes a gradiënt yarn from Wollelfe.

I made German short rows instead of wrap and turn. They still show a bit in the light yarn, but hopefully blocking will make them a lot more invisible.

Doing all the increases in the short rows as per pattern. After that 7 times every 8 rows and then only every 16 rows because I’m afraid the body will get too wide.
Making the body a bit longer: 16 more rows of stripes before starting the solid section.

The pattern only calls for 3 decreases. I did a lot more: first decrease after 8 cm and then another 8 decreases every 12 rows.
It was a lot of winding and breaking yarn for the sleeves, because I wanted them to have the same gradiënt effect as the body has and I only had one more skein of the Wollelfe yarn.

Body: 86 gr. Wollelfe
Sleeves: 23 gr. Wollelfe
