Yarn: Hansen Hand Dyes Mega Merino for contrast color and T&H Fiber Works Heathers Favorite Sock for the main color. I used 74 yards of CC and 328 yards of MC.
Needle: US 5
Mods: Striped in a contrast color rather than the called for solid color in the pattern
I was extremely pleased withe finished result. The finished object is a perfectly squishy garter shawl that is long enough and skinny enough to be a lovely winter accessory. Seeing as it’s above 95 here in Kansas right now, I didn’t take any modeled shots. I just could bring myself to sweat that much!
Above is the right side of the garter. And below is the wrong side.
I think they both are aesthetically pleasing! I hope this means that no matter how I wear this one that it will be totally gorgeous. Happy Knitting!!
Yarn: Hansen Hand Dyes Mega Merino in Boys Don’t Cry for main color. And T&H Fiberworks Favorite Sock in Blue Suede Shoes for contrast color.
This is just so squishy and nice! The pattern is fab and easy to follow. Melanie Berg is just amazing. The main color was a little splitty but not unwieldy. I’m very glad I didn’t add extra sections cuz this thing is massive!
I’m over the moon with this and can’t wait to wear it next fall! Proof…..I took outdoor photos in the 95 degree heat!
