the yarn came as part of the Ysolda 2016 Club. Just wasnโ€™t feeling excited about the pattern, so Iโ€™m using the yarn to make this instead!

Note the problem on Chart B - by comparing with written directions, you can figure out where to move the repeat line on each side.

Iโ€™m doing 8 repeats of Chart B because I want this to be bigger given all the yardage that I have. I may do more repeats of Chart C -- edited to add I did 5 repeats instead of 4.

For Chart D, I wanted less of this - so I did 6 rows, and then began Chart E with fudging the ends to match on those rows.

By the end of Row 22, I had used 54 grams of the 100 gram ball (46 grams left), and was using about 2.5 gr per row, so I am just going ahead to work the last 10 rows - if I think it will be plenty big enough without adding more rows. Update: wrong! I was only using about 1 gram per row, but I felt adding in more rows was going to make this bigger than I could reasonably wear.

I ending up making the edging with 4 more rows (repeating the โ€œopenโ€ increases and โ€œclosedโ€ increase rows one more time each. Then cast-off with a yarn over bind-off for stretch.

Total size with all of these adjustments: about 66 inches wide and 27 inches long after blocking.
