Kingfisher buttercup IntSweMoDo2013
Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier
Needles & yarn
1,170 yards = 9 skeins
Stylecraft Pure Luxury Merino Double Knitting
130 yards in stash
9 skeins = 1170.0 yards (1069.8 meters), 450 grams

UPDATE: 19 March: Finished but not a great fan of the rolling hem. Also was over-keen to cast off and it’s about an inch too short. Will frog back the curling feather and fan, knit another 1” of stocking stitch, then just do a garter stitch perpendicular edge from the Buttercup Variation to to prevent the roll for another 1/2”… Might even decrease the bottom edge before gartering to help pull it in too…

Thanks so much for Poppleton’s amazing helpful notes. Have short-row shaped the bust and will be reducing for the waist to create a more fitted knit rather than an a-line tunic…

Love the neckline and just working my way through the acres of stocking stitch…
