Notes

… More/better FO-photos planned …Notes in progress.

I really like the i-cord edging. Easy to knit, easy to remember & looks nice.

My modifications:
Three, instead of two, colours. Quite a crazy colour combination to be me, I must say.

Thinner needles (3,5 mm). I achieved the original gauge with needles 4,5 mm, but I found the fabric too loose and floppy then.

SECTION 1 (set up & garter):
MC: Splosh (yellow)

SECTION 2 & 3 (the Chart = old shale lace):
repetition 1:4
only Splosh (yellow)

repetition 2:4
MC (= background): Wash (grey)
CC (= ridges): Splosh (yellow)

repetition 3:4
MC (background): Impasto (pink)
CC (ridges): Splosh (yellow)

repetition 4:4 (like 2:4)
MC (background): Wash (= grey)
CC (ridges): Splosh (yellow)

SECTION 4 & 5 (short rows, garter stitch):
Impasto (pink)

BIND OFF:
Instead of the suggested ktog-bind off,
I chose a 2-stitch i-cord bind off.

….Gauge, measurements & weight:….

GAUGE:
Mine (original):
Gauge, garter stitch, Section 1: 20 (15) sts/30 (30) rows
Gauge, garter stitch, Section 5: 18 (15) sts/36 (30) rows

MEASUREMENTS:
Wingspan:185 (208 cm)
Depth: Start, section 5: 57 cm, Bind off: 86 (51) cm

TOTAL WEIGHT: 183 g = 551 meters yarn used
