Knitting Notes




Pattern: Ruched Yoke Tee by AnneLena Mattison
Yarn: Cascade Ultra Pima in the Juniper colorway
Needles: Size 6 circs

Version two of the Ruched Yoke Tee is done. I did it with a smaller needle size this time, which is already definitely better. I still added a little extra length before decreasing the bust, but I had to skip two of the increase pattern repeats at the end, or it would have been way too long. I also happened to be running out of yarn anyway, so it was a definite bonus that it turned out to be long enough when I realized that.

I very much enjoy working with this yarn - definitely the nicest cotton I've ever worked with. It's much softer than any other cotton I've worked with. Not that it's up to wool softness standards, but I never had to take a break from knitting because it was making my hands hurt.
