Notes

Birte consist of 75 % Superwash Merino 15 % Cashmere and 10 % Bombyx Silk.

I do not have enough yarn of one color and hence have to make do with what I have.

I did start with temporary cast on. But since I wanted the hem to be of the second color, I did make a larger hem and also a “pointed” turn by knit to together, cast over all stitches at the turning row.

Changed colors on sleeves as well, as I did not have enough grey to make the cuffs. I do think it turned out well.

Also - I’ve managed (now) to get more yarn, so I’ll make a tee to go with it.
