Notes

MC- Luna (soft, almost purplish grey)
CC1 - Early Spring (purple)
C2 - Spanish Coin (gold)

Mods so far:

  • After six rows, I changed increases from yo to M1 (backward loop method). It’s easier to remember, involves less counting, and yields the same stretchy edge, so I’m sticking with it.
  • On MC shortrows, after increase bit at the beginning, I knit 22 sts before w&t in order to knit first wrapped stitch.

The edge between my short-row sections is turning out a little gappy, so maybe I’ll try knitting the wrapped stitches tbl to tighten them up a bit. Will report back.

I learned to live with the gaps (I think they’ll block out a bit – they did).

For the border, I knit 12 rows before binding off (on the RS). In the last row, I didn’t do any increases, which made binding off easier and neater.

Finished!
Leftovers are:
MC - 14g
CC1 - 44g
CC2 - 30g
Definitely enough for a second pair of Leftover Socks!

Finished size:
Unblocked/unstretched - 77 inches long, 15 inches deep
After blocking: 85 inches long, 15.75 inches deep
