Sundara Yarn DK Merino the 2nd
February 9, 2014

First time casting on so many stitches. Had trouble estimating the length of the cast on tail so decided to browse for solutions and found this:

It worked perfectly and now I’m happily knitting on.

Day 2. I’m halfway through. The pattern is easy and simple. However, in spite of that, I miscounted my first set of yarn overs and only did 5 instead of 6 rows so I decided to continue with that number. If I have enough yarn, I will probably do an extra section of yarn overs.

Finished binding off. Will block tomorrow. I’m very happy with this pattern and yarn. I ended up doing four YO K2Tog sections.

Pre-blocked width: 5” wide
Post-blocked width: 8” wide

Blocking really opened up the lace sections. It’s like a flower blooming!

As for the yarn, this is my second project using the Sundara yarn and I am so in love with this brand. The DK merino tended to split but was not a big deal. It was such a pleasure to knit. The color is a blend of blush pink with peachy tones, so pretty! I did not use up all the skein and had a few yards left.
