Knitting Knotes

Everything as set in the pattern (I followed the largest size), except for the bands.

Neckband: 
12 rows rib in total (not 10).

Front bands:
Pick up 10 not 8 along neckband.
Knit 13 rows in total not 11. 

I bought the Adriafil Primula at Bodkins in Benfleet. The owner is very friendly and very helpful and the shop is stuffed full of yarn for all budgets. 

I bought the buttons at Craft Arena on the Barleylands craft site in Billericay. Again the owner is very friendly and helpful. More of a craft shop than yarn shop - brilliant for beading.

Purple Primula already to wear. 

What shall I wear with it?














With denim vest and scarf to wear with jeans.

With white vest and contrast scarf to wear with white trousers. 

With black vest to wear with black capri pants. 


















Overall I am very pleased with this make - it fits lovely - despite being smaller than the pattern said it would be!

The yarn is a gorgeous soft merino, cool and warm - perfect all year:)
