Hi y'all!

I made this for my roommate Erica for her 21st birthday. She is a swell roomie.  Grin It's the Felicie Slanted Lace Choker by Sylvie at Chez Plum.

I changed it only a little- I used less than 1 skein of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in #207 Gray Blue, which is alot thinner than the yarn  required, but I wanted to stash bust. Its also very, very soft- so comfortable to wear!! I used 3.5mm needles, and I made it a bit wider by knitting more rows on the buttonhole side, since my gauge was off. I used 2.5mm needles for the anenome flower (incl. in the pattern, and is removable by buttoning it on and off!), which I also made out of cashmerino.

Enjoy!

You must be a pretty swell roomie yourself.  That is so gorgeous.   I love the colour.  Great job!  It's so classy looking.

So pretty!  It reminds me of the Perdita wrister patterns from the Summer '06 version of Knitty.

That is GORGEOUS! Congratulations on making such a beautiful choker. I'm jealous... I'm going to need to make one of my own.
