Notes

Color Affection blocked beautifully. I am so glad that I chose to do all of those yarn overs to give the edge some extra elasticity. The final dimensions are 19” x 85”, a little smaller than the pattern measurements.

Some quick, unblocked shots in photos 6 and 7.

TECHNICAL DETAILS:

  • I used this technique to carry the yarns along the edge.

  • Many knitters have recommended to do a yarn over after the first stitch and before the last stitch on the other edge on the Right Side, and then to slip the YO on the wrong side. It gives the edge some extra ease, which works really well.

  • I bound off using the method of K2togTBL, return to the left needle, repeat until all stitches are cast off.
