FO: Aramis

Since Porthos worked out pretty well, and I had plenty of Cotton Fleece in my stash, I decided to do Aramis – basically the same as Porthos, but without the medallion in the center front. It was also supposed to have half-length sleeves, but I stuck with the shorter sleeves.

Here’s a closeup of that neckline. It took a while to sew it in place, but I like how it turned out.

Aramis - neckline detail

Pattern: Aramis, from Norah Gaughan Vol. 2
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, slightly over 3 skeins (only needed the 4th for the neckband)
Needles: 4.5mm for the body, 4mm and 3.75mm for the hems and neckband

Modifications: Made it longer, and instead of doing the plain garter stitch bottom hem and lace band for the sleeve cuffs, I did both by knitting 6 rows of garter stitch, 2 rows of eyelets, then another 5 rows of garter stitch. Used the shorter Porthos sleeve instead of the half-length sleeve.
