FO: Willoughby




Pattern: Willoughby by Jared Flood

Yarn: 2.25 skeins of Sunday Knits, Nirvana

Needles: US 7 circular

Started: September 14, 2009

Finished: November 11, 2009



This little number was a Must Knit on my list. I feel in love with the pattern from day one, except the yarn I chose was not working with the design. So, after hours of scouring the isles of Stitches Midwest this year I located this beautiful yarn. I couldn't resist the added blend of cashmere. Oh Yeah Baby!



The only modification was to add 5 more repeats to each end to have a very long scarf. The pattern is well written and the chart easy to read. The bobbles were actually my favorite section of all. They're not overly dramatic and gives nice texture to this piece.

Beauteous!! I'm serious - you'd better keep a tight hold that one, my friend. It's totally my color ;-D
