Holly from Magknits





Yarn: 8 hanks Ecoknits cotton in sage, dyed deep violet with Dylon
Pattern notes: I had to recalculate the pattern based on my dk gauge.  I also knit the body in the round and divided for the armholes and knit the sleeves in the round.  I really messed up with the sleeve cap but it doesn't seem to show.  I love the design, it's so clean and classy.  And I really like the strong colour that I dyed it.  It took me about 2 months to knit on and off.  A few more photos on my Flickr

Just for comparison, this is what the yarn looked like originally.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.


The northern downpour sends its love.

Doroxy : I made mine according to her measurements (there is no schematic on the site but if you e-mail Anna she'll kindly give you one) that gives about 2 inches of ease.  If you're going to knit it in the round you'll have to make a swatch and do a few calculations.  I think normally flat knitting also takes in account up to half inch seam allowances.  Because I didn't knit to her gauge I can't get much more specific.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments Smiley
