I know, I know...another new project, but when I saw this pattern come through the CEY newsletter, I had to make it. I think it will be a Christmas present for someone, but we'll see what happens.
It's called Must Have Wrap, and I think it's a fairly accurate name.
I went stash diving and came up with my ColourMart Silk/Linen 12/60NM Fingering Weight yarn. I have about 1600 yards of yarn and this pattern calls for about 1200 yards.
I've cast on using my brand-spanking new Darn Pretty needles...let me count the ways over these things. If you don't own some of these, go buy some...and do it fast because there is quite a LOOOONG wait for them. I'll write about them next week and how much I want to scatter them on the ground and roll around with them.
Now let me admit how lazy I am. I cast on for this twice. Both times, I'm pretty sure I counted right, but since it's not a big deal, I didn't really bother to go back and count. Both times, I wound up with the stitch count not working on the wrong side rows. So, I just fudged it and have moved on. Oddly, it works perfectly on the right side, but not on the wrong side. So, because I'm such a slug, and don't want to figure out how many stitches I have, this will remain a mystery. Had to get that off my chest...because if it is a pattern error, then at least you've been warned.
