This was a really easy knit which I could not get my head around the first time - not too good at reading. But it really is easy and quick. Took about a week to knit this in Paton's Smoothie (acrylic), sweet and easy.
Took another week just to do the fluffy edge using Moda Vera's Fluffy - very hard on the eyes.
It's really warm and has a gorgeous sheen, and the fluffy part's really soft.
Some action shots...

That is so soft-looking. And it looks so good on you.
Well done!

Isn't it a miracle how the collar turns out to be correct?
(In my case that doesn't always happen the first time however.)
