Affogato by Sharon Boswell
design sample
Needles & yarn
122 yards = 1.2 skeins
Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8 ply
none left in stash
1 skein = 102.0 yards (93.3 meters), 50 grams
Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8 ply
184 yards in stash
0.2 skeins = 20.4 yards (18.7 meters), 10 grams

Unblocked gauge in stocking stitch 18 stitches to 10cm/4inches

Decided to try a wider band and see how it works. I now have the increaes from the band matching the pattern stitch.

This one was pretty tight for 1 ball of Perfect Day, didn’t need to undo my small swatch but it was very close to that, so I’ve noted in the pattern that you may need a second ball for this size.

Just love this yarn, have not had good experiences with alpaca yarns in the past as I have super sensitive skin but I loved knitting this and am now thinking of buying a garment lot.
