updated photos as our backyard beckoned and I did rework the entire collar as discussed in my blog right here … I forgot to ask for the full shot with very cute shoes! ugh!!

about the project go to Hollyknits
about the location go to Hollyknits

and what did you do when the snow was flying and schools were closed … and, admittedly, needing a break away from bobbles, bobbles, and bobbles?

perfect for utilizing a bit-o stash!

~I had no idea I was Ravelry friends with the designer! How, exciting for her to see her pattern, here (I would imagine.)
~the collar is lined which makes for a padded, thick kind of fabric which is the exact factor that caused me to make this. It will allow the collar to fashionably stand up.
~great project to take on a little fair isle which may be a rusty skill for you (it is/was for me).
~I happily used the duplicating stitch for the third color on those rows that had three colors. I find duplicate stitch fun and relaxing as you see your progress and the beautiful pattern immediately.
~do not add increases in the body if you do not want the swing look, however I love all details and love the attention to any/all styling.
~when using stash, for worsted weight, you could double your dk or your fingering yarns (more options).
~and, of course, one row button-hole method is a must as well as sewing button on with project yarn..
