11 July 2018 — Finished the back section! Needn’t have taken almost three weeks but I’ve been more committed in the last week and covered lots of ground. I’ve got gauge (unblocked) on the rows and have two too many stitches, but I think that should be ok. We will see!


23 July 2018 -- I knitted the front section a couple inches shorter than the pattern suggests and so also went to rip the back section back a couple inches to match. Today I finished knitting the right side panel and sleeve. On to the left side panel!

Will I finish by July 29, in time to join the Pompom summer 2018 KAL?! Time will tell!

Finished!! More here:

Queue Notes

My first ever make from a Pom Pom Quarterly. Also my second make where I’ve bought the exact yarn recommended in the pattern. I’ve bought 4 skeins each colour Berroco Corsica (colours Shark Eye and Cork) and think I’ll be making a size 2. My bust is 88 cm and with 10-20 cm positive ease that puts me in a size 2 or 3 range, but I also have a relatively gentle tension, so maybe 2? Anyway, I think I’ve got enough yarn to do a proper swatch (imagine that!!)


Successfully washed in a mesh wash bag on a gentle cycle in a washing machine as the ‘cork’ colour was getting a little too off-white for my comfort.
