Ah, we LOVE the 4th of July!
Oh, I love this pattern. I used Malabrigo in pale khaki, two and a half hanks. This is the first time I have knit with this yarn, and I made longer sleeves because I loved working with it so much. So soft!
I made a few mods to this. I cast on about half the number of stitches for the neck line then the pattern called for, and did a 2x2 rib, instead of the 1x1 rib.
I am thinking about one on green, but for now I am working on another summer knit.
