Notes

Test knit for Dani smile with rainbow CC shades kindly donated by Dani herself, thank you!

Mods: down a needle size for gauge, so 3.5mm body and 3.25mm ribbing. Also I’ve knitted the sleeve length to about the 10 year old size (Noah has long arms like his gran wink )

Not a mod, but I didn’t use a provisional cast on at the shoulders, but instead picked up the stitches afterwards (Dani does give this option): I’ve come to find that this can look as neat as using live stitches.

FO: absolutely love this, everything about the pattern, the fit, the lovely light, woolly yarn, the rainbow! rainbow well done, Dani clapclapclap

Hopefully I have just enough of the rainbow colours left to knit another one in a different Ulysse MC for my youngest granddaughter blush

2.12 update: a little bit short for Noah in the 8 year old size, so I’ve used up the MC I had left to add an inch or two to the length.

20.02 update: the pullover has now been handed over to granddaughter Orla as Noah has decided that all wool is too itchy confused. Luckily, Orla is made of hardier stuff! and I’ve just been sent these lovely photos by my dil of her wearing it on their Scottish hols heart_eyes
