joji, veera, joji, veera, veera, joji. I think there’s a theme going on…

I’ve experimented with a few different CCs and ended up using this mid-brown shade, though I’m not sure what it is! an odd wound skein where I’ve lost the label - it’s a singles base though and I’ve used about 75gm. The OOAK Mellifera singles sock shade is wonderful: a dark peaty brown.

Mods: I’ve omitted the increases on the CC section of the body (to reduce flare at the bottom) and I’ve knitted longer sleeves (10” in MC before start of the CC section).

For the cuff and body cast offs, I’ve used a double strand of yarn to add a bit more definition.

I’ve made the pullover quite fitted, rather than adding in the suggested ease - just prefer it this way on me. Overall, I really like the style, especially the cowl neckline, and the yarn weight means it’s quite a light knit to wear. A thumbs-up, I think - and a free pattern too!
