Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool
3 skeins = 576.0 yards (526.7 meters), 150 grams

There was an error in the pattern when it was first published on the Rowan site. There were only 12 rows shown on the graph. An email to Rowan and they fixed it within 24 hours. I like that. The new download available has all 32 rows of the pattern repeat.

I’m making some changes to the pattern. I’m doing the ribbing and sleeves in the contrast color (blue, for me) instead of the main color. I’m hoping that there will be no flare in the ribbing by using the Silky Wool instead of Revive. That means, on Row 1 only I worked as stranded/fair isle instead of slip stitches. This was necessary as there was no contrast color to slip. After Row 1, I followed the graph as written.

I didn’t do the shaping in the body. For size Medium I cast on 122 sts., worked 4 sts for the right edge, did 7 repeats of 16, finishing with 5 left side edge sts. On the last row of the ribbing I decreased 1 st = 121 sts on needle.

I plan to make the body a bit longer.

All yarn is from my stash!
