Corsica by Norah Gaughan
Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
US 5 - 3.75 mm
Moda Vera Sombre
56 yards in stash
4.7 skeins = 869.5 yards (795.1 meters), 235 grams

I’m satisfied with the result.
The yarn is so feathery and smooth.


I chose this pattern because of the lace pattern on the bottom half of the garment and the construction.
The lace pattern uses drop stitch technique, which was new to me and I really enjoyed dropping tne stitches, feeling a bit guilty at the first drop st.

The pattern calls for DK/8ply yarn but mine is 3ply. I managed to get a closer gauge to the pattern’s, increaseing the size of needle, and also I added one more block of the lace pattern. I basically followed X-small size.

The lighter yarn made the ladder (see-through part ) more visible.
Made the length of the sleeves longer.

Back & Front centre panel: Cable CO 43 + 14 sts
Gauge: 2.2stsx2.3rows in stst on jp7/4.2mm
In lace on jp6/3.9mm

There is a mistake on Row 35 of the lace chart.
The drop st should be moved 2sts to the left.

Shape neck: divide 21sts for shoulder, 27 for neck, 21. Dec 1st at neck every row 13 times. Left 8sts for each shoulder.
Centre panel length=153R/67cmx2.3R=pick up 155sts

Sleeve 52rows from the last dec row.

Neckband: 69sts-58sts=11 58/11=5..3 pick-up 6sts 3times,5sts8times
