what does someone who is undeniably dedicated to all things woolie year round do when she feels some spring fever coming on?
size 10.5 needles
4 oz of my hand dyed handspun – PA animal friendly shetland – and 2/3 of a really sheepy skein of farm wool – perhaps the best photo for color is the one not in the sun, pictured in the post below this one
seamless top down, inspired by this pattern
i had a completely different gauge and just winged most of it. when i ran out of the handspun, i switched to the farm wool. i then worked a bunch of 1×1 rib to repeat the pattern of the collar and to make up for the difference in gauge. at the bottom edge, i worked garter stitch. to draw the two garter stitch edges together and give it a finished look.
