Just finished this - it was a great project and went pretty fast as well!  It fits great and was a lot of fun to knit.

fans of Salt Peanuts will enjoy this one as it uses the same yarn - Muench Bergamo.  same designer, too.

I love it--love Muench Bergamo, and love Veronik Avery's designs, and you clearly did a fabulous job knitting it up.   Out of curiosity, how many balls of Bergamo did it take?

thanks, y'all...  emling, it took 7 balls of Bergamo - it's the size 36 3/4", so I'm assuming the smaller size might take 6.  It's actually a pretty wild pattern - I learned a bunch of new stuff, including Kitchener stitch, three-needle bind-off, and the weirdo stitch needed to do the edging.  I'm so in awe of pattern designers sometimes, that they can come up with these things!

Yours looks lovely! I've been contemplating making that pattern, so it's nice to see how it turns out in real life. Nice work! Very inspiring, indeed.

Wow! That's gorgeous! You are inspiring me to put that on my list of knitting books that I must buy! And the color is gorgeous too!

Thanks for sharing!

By the way, how long did it take you to knit it?

it knits on 10 1/2 needles, so it didn't take that long to knit - I think I started it round the beginning of August, but I was also working on another project simultaneously.  The body sections knit up in no time - it's the picking up stitches and knitting the edgings that is more time-consuming, but even they weren't so bad.  I also knit nearly every day - I'm obsessed!
