This was a very fun knit. I found this pattern in the Knit Simple magazine for Winter 2011. It is one of the two-skein projects.
I knit this one for my hairdresser who also teaches driving techniques to teenagers, which means she is in and out of cars during our cold winters. She told me her favorite color is fuschia. I hope this yarn colorway comes close enough. The yarn I found at the Yarn Outlet and is Donata by Adrienne Vittadini in a bulky weight.
I used the provisional cast on and used one skein for 61 rows. The second skein came real close to the finish but I did break into a third to finish. It is a really fast knit and the bobbles are fun to make.
Happy Knitting to All~!
Note: Holiday knitting goes great with eggnog.
