Notes

Testknit for Carina.
Named for Giulia Farnese

I dyed the gold yarn just for this project. I guess I had a theme in mind when I first saw the pattern.

The yarn was chosen ages ago. Now I can't decide if it should be red and gold or gold and red.

Gold and red it is! I was only able to come to this conclusion because of yardage.


Starting weight:

Red 86g
Gold 100g


Section 1
Red = 33g / 145 yards
Gold = 11g / 39 yrds

Section 2
Gold Used 68g / 243 yards

Used 79g total of gold (sections 1-2)

Section 3

Red starting skein= 54g
Gold starting skein = 21g
