Gothberry Shortcake

Project info
Rose Red by Ysolda Teague
HatBeret, Tam
Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
Knit Picks Swish DK

3/11/15 Started with size 5 dpns - I am a loosey goosey knitter, so I think it will be ok. Switched to size 6 circulars. Had never done an icord, it was quite fun! The fiddly beginning with 6 stitches between three needles was not so much fun, however the stitch count grows quickly, so it’s not too bad for more than a round or two. Knitting with black yarn so pretty sure photos are not going to come out well.

Just bound off with barely enough yarn. I realized I was running out and eliminate two rows of the k7p3 from rows 60-68. I don’t think it made any difference. I do know, however, that it is too big. I would definitely knit this again, as it is an easy, fun knit, but I would do the smallest size for sure next time, since I know I am a loosey-goosey knitter and I also refuse to gauge swatch
