Knitting Notes



Pattern: Roger Bear by Nice and Knit
Yarn: Classic Elite MountainTop Vista in Peat and Patternworks Bretton Heathers in color 9000
Embroidery Floss: DMC 581 (eyes) and 3716 (nose)
Needles: Size 5 DPNs and Size 8 circs

I really love this pattern - easy, uses up scraps, and super cute.    I'm definitely keeping this in my repertoire.

The Bretton Heathers definitely ended up being on the lighter side of DK weight, so I made the blanket a bit bigger than the pattern called for: I added two repeats into each row, and did one extra repeat of the pattern.

That's really my only quibble with that Bretton Heather yarn - it's other wise lovely to work with, and at five bucks a skein, it's a steal.
