Notes

Sample knit for LMB Designs with slight designer modifications.

Mohair was 97 grams.

Up to 2 repeats: 4” long by 3.5” wide with US 4.
Going down a needle size to US 3 to get 3” wide choker.

8/27/15: waiting on other yarn to show up.

8/29/15: So excited! The threads showed up! One is glow-in-the-dark!

Unblocked: 11.5” x 3”
Blocked: 12” x 3”

Came out fantastic! The choker glows in the dark and the spider body is shiny from the micro ice chenille and the heavy metallic red braid. Fun and reasonably quick!
Lisa has buttons and will add them when she receives this sample knit.

Fun and cute!
