Notes

As if I had nothing to knit…

After making this I really feel like making more round yokes :-)

Geeez, this yoke is so addictive!
But not sure if I like the color combo :-/

Mods:
I’m using more than two CC:
rain - turquoise
umbrella tops - pink
umbrella sticks - white
zigzags - pistacchio
leaves - green
flowers - light blue

I had no idea how to read increases in rnd 28 of chart and combine fair isle in 3 colors so I made umbrella sticks only and evenly increased 6 sts per chart repeat on my own.

I also made 3/4 sleeves. I ignored instructions for sleeves in the pattern, just picked up sts for underarm and then decreased 2 sts every 8th round.

I also made body shorter - I knew the yarn would grow. Though it grew a bit more than expected ;-)


I’m late for Joji’s KAL, but that’s ok. :-)
