October Frost, Finished

october frost done


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!

A beautiful project. Thanks for the tip about the cuffs, I love the idea. And the adjustment on the collar makes loads of sense.

Lovely! You inspire me to go back and finish mine. I've knitted the pieces, but as usual got stuck at the blocking stage. Don't you just love the book? I think it is my all time favorite.
