Notes

This is my second Snowflake, but it’s the first time I actually work it with two colors. Since I had equal amount of the purple and the tan, I decided to go for a striped body.

--------------------Mods--------------------

  • I removed the edge stitches and worked the yoke in the round.

  • No waist shaping was done, I worked the body straight.

  • I added short row shaping for a slightly longer back.

  • The striping sequence is 11 rows MC, 3 CC, 2 MC, 4 CC, 2 MC, 3 CC.

Finished the body, just the sleeves are left. 25g of purple and 23g of tan left.

2018/12/02

2018/12/09
Second sleeve done. 13g of purple and 3g of tan left.

--------------------Yarn--------------------
This yarn is nice, a little scratchy somehow but very easy to work with and has a good stitch definition. Definitely suited for lace!
