Flo


I finished Flo, last night, and after doing a steam block, I couldn't wait to try it on. It is half sweater, half wrap, a really big rectangle with two holes in the middle for arms. It will be really nice this fall.



The back comes up quite a bit, and while knitting I was pretty worried it would be too short, but blocking really realxed the rolling edges.




I am sure there are many different ways to wear the sweater. It will be fun to experiment.


The details:


Pattern: Flo, from The Very Stylish Angora Merino Book


Yarn: Cascade 220 Peruvian wool


After taking my measurements, I decided to knit a large, I think the pattern may run a bit small across the back.


My next knit will not be for me. Promise.
