Notes

Really looking forward to seeing how this knits up in natural shades as part of the Knit British Natural Shades KAL. I’ve been wanting to knit one of Kate’s patterns from Yokes ever since I got the book, so really pleased that this KAL has pushed me into starting.

It’s finished and blocked and the fit is lovely. The collar is a wee bit loose, even thought I went down two needle sizes and knit another row of the garter, but I can live with that. My bunched up colorwork really smoothed out after blocking. Very pleased with the pattern, the wool and the process of knitting this.
