Using a strand of Kidsilk Haze along with the All Seasons Cotton to try to blur and soften the All Season’s somewhat over-the-top stitch definition a bit, and to add some depth to the color. Plus, it’s so incredibly soft.

Although I like the look of the very blocked-out lace, for this fiber combination I wanted to have a less open fabric. Since my gauge was already somewhat smaller than the stated gauge, I followed the instructions for 46” bust, and it came out fitting 38”.

Cast on 67 st on #11s, then switched to #10s on the first row. Did 6 reps of 4-row pattern, then changed the purl rows to knits. Buttonholes on rows 5, 21 and 37. Did 3 repeats of the purl-ridge row at the bottom.

I did not want the lower edge of the sleeve to look as heavy as the bind-off for the body, so after doing 2 reps with the purl ridge, I turned the yos on the final round into backwards-loop m1s, and bound off in purl.
