I dug out some "precious" hand-dyed sock yarn that had been marinating in the stash for quite some time. What an unusual and beautiful combination of colors! At least that's what I think... Paul thought they were kind of weird. Then again, he's red-green colorblind.
The pattern's very easy to follow, and I especially loved knitting the garter stitch bodice. Only a few minor modifications:
- moving the buttonholes closer to the edge – just K1, then k2tog, yo, etc.
- instead of decreasing 1 stitch where specified (after the bodice), increasing 3 stitches evenly, then using the extra stitches to do a 2-stitch garter border on the front edges. I think a 3-stitch border would be even better.
- skipping the picot bindoff and did 4 rows of garter stitch and a regular BO knitwise instead.
