Midwinter Yarns

Mods: I’ve got gauge with this lovely Faroe Isles Snaeldan yarn using a 4mm needle. (It’s labelled as ‘3-ply’, DK and comes in 50gm hanks from Midwinter Yarns. The Midnight shade isn’t quite black, but not far off! wink )

Also: I’ve made the sleeves less tapered (decreased down to 52 sts), and knitted them and the body slightly longer. I’ve used a 3.75mm and 3.5mm needle for the turtleneck.

NB: I’ve actually made a mistake in the Stalactite pattern in the lower half of the body. I followed the written instructions for the yoke+1, but once I started using the chart, I failed to notice the red repeat box… thinking_face …it’s not too noticeable, so I’ve Let. It. Be.

Love this, both pattern and yarn! heart_eyes the Snaeldan knits up to quite a dense fabric - very warm and cozy sunglassesfire
