Summit (frogged)

Needle and yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm
handspun Bluefaced leicester from frieda

gift from frieda

I’m not often bored with knitting and most of my chosen patterns bring me joy. But this project was one of the most tiring I ever had. After more than a year I was sorry to waste a wonderful yarn on a project which seemed to be endless although I used backward knitting to speed up the knitting process.
The yarn now suits perfectly for 2/3 frieda

This pattern was adapted by a machine knitting pattern of John Allen. So to speak a machine knitting pattern was converted to hand knitting.
Congratulations to all who finish hand knitting projects of this pattern. I admired many projects of other knitters but I’m definitely not the one who will proudly show a complete Summit.
