Shetland Wool Week Project # 3
Blocked Gauge: 36 sts + 44 rows = 4 7/8 ” square Blocked Gauge: 29.53 sts + 36.1 rows = 4” -2.75 mm needle for tubular CO; ribbing + body worked w/ 3.0 mm needles; tubular bind-off w/ 2.75 mm needles
My first steeked project! Perfect pattern & fabulous yarn. I was nervous about the steeking process, but my nervousness was unfounded - Ysolda explains the process extremely well & also has great tutorials on her site.
I knit the pattern as written with the exception of working 2x2 ribbing for both the armholes & neckband & changing the colour palette. Colour substitutions below:
MC = 77 CC1 = 1 CC2 = 54 CC3 & CC6 = 203 CC4 & CC5 = 81
