It was a hot (for the UK), sunny Friday afternoon when I wanted something to knit but didn’t want a bunch of fabric from a shawl or top lying in my lap so I grabbed a cool drink, went out into the garden, grabbed some yarn that matched the wisteria and lavender flowers that were out there and sat in the shade of some bamboo, set to designing.

So I give you ‘Friday Afternoon’.

A quick summary:

Sizes (to fit)
Toddler: 43cm (17in)
Child: 45.5-48cm (18-19in)
Teen: 50.5-53cm (20-21in)
Small Adult: 56cm (22in)
Large Adult: 61cm (24in)
All sizes have a decent amount of stretch due to the nature of the pattern so pick the size closest to your measurements.

Yarn Requirements

120-170m yarn depending on size chosen.

26sts & 32 rows = 10cm (4 inches) in k3, p1 rib, lightly blocked in larger needle.
The horizontal gauge (26sts) is more important than the row gauge.
