Yes, it’s another FO. This one was mostly knitted on my trip to Las Vegas last weekend.
The pattern was written for Debbie Bliss Pure Silk DK, but I didn’t really want to make it out of pure silk, and was just keeping my eye out for something else. When I saw this RYC Merino Silk DK at Unraveled Sheep’s progressive sale, I decided to grab it. I’m not sure it was the best yarn choice, because it’s a little bit heavy and will probably be quite warm, but it feels and looks nice.
The smallest size said it was to fit bust size 32-34″, but with a finished size of 35.75. Hmmm. I’m not sure why you’d want that much positive ease in a ribbed top. I thought that even the small would be a little too big, so I decreased the total number of stitches by 12. Even at that, it’s plenty loose.
I also added 2″ to the length, but now I’m thinking that might have been a mistake. I might snip a thread and shorten it a bit.
Other than changes for size, the only modification I made was to add a little bit of short-row shaping at the shoulder seam, and doing a 3-needle bind-off instead of casting off and seaming.
