October Frost, Finished
Here it is! With buttons and everything blocked. To recap the details and changes I've made:
October Frost from A Fine Fleece, knit in Peace Fleece Worsted - Samantha Katya Pink on US 6's and 8's (4.0mm and 5.0mm). This is the smallest size in the pattern.
On the sleeve cuffs I reversed the rib halfway up so they would fold over nicely.
On the collar, I knit the first 2 inches on US 6's (4.0mm), then did an inch on US 7's (4.5mm) and finished on US 8's (5.0mm). A collar like this needs to be wider the farther from the neckline you get in order to lay nicely.
Those are the only changes I made to the pattern as written, and it's written very well.
I love the cables, I love the shape of it - oversized and comfy, and I love the way it looks. Now I just need a little bit cooler weather!
