Notes

Test knit. I had a top made from this Dream in Color yarn that I wasn’t happy with so I frogged it to use for this. I wasn’t sure that 100gms would be enough so I had a skein of KFI Luxury Mohair that matches perfectly! I just alternated the two yarns for a sheer striping effect, looks great! The pattern is super easy but not boring, absolutely love it! Can’t wait until it’s released! Just finished! Measurements came out perfectly with the gauge and pattern schematic. Did I say how much I love this? Looks fantastic on, easy-to-use pattern, even if you just know how to knit in the round a beginner could do this and it would look great.

Just wanted to show off the second one I am knitting because I love it so much! This one is done in an improvised Fairisle design, following the original pattern just adding traditional designs. The yarns are Malabrigo Mechita in Eggplant and Plomo and a ball of knit picks chroma fingering, I think that it is Avalon, butI need to check. I wanted to try a low contrast color scheme. So far I think that I like it
Just finished with my second top! I will chart the colorwork as soon as possible but such a great pattern Thanks for the test Teresa!

You may notice that the second top is smaller, I took it in about two inches so it would fit me with negative ease, it won’t affect the yoke chart but a full body chart would be off on the stitch counts, I will attach those anyway, you could always put another repeat to make up for the difference
