frieda made me a wonderful gift: handspun Blufaced Leicester yarn twined with a shimmering thread.
I first started a Summit throw but was bored with the knitting.
It was frogged after 40cm of knitting because I didn’t want to spend lifetime with tedious activities especially when I can produce the same pattern on my knitting machine.
So I frogged the throw and combined this soft yarn with sock yarn in blue and purple/violet/blue.
The pattern was changed for long sleeves by working 10 rounds between the decreases. When the upper arm reached the above ellbow I changed to 20 rounds between the decreases, then 30 and 40 rounds.
Then I put the stitches on hold and finished the second sleeve to the same state. I finished the sleeves with 2/2 ribs first with 3mm needles then I changed to 2,5mm needles. Cast-off was made with round edge which looks the same from both sides.

When putting the edge-stitches on 2,5mm needles I doubled every 8th stitch. After 18 rounds I changed to 3mm needles, after 18 more rounds to 3,5mm.
Cast-off was worked with round edge which allows to bend the collar.

Needle-changing avoids a “blouson”-appearing which I don’t like and which is also unflattering for my rubenesque figure.

There are no leftovers of the blue yarn, about two meters of the turquoise yarn and 5g of the sockyarn.

@frieda: how do you like the combination of frieda- and LanArta-colors?
