Green Vines

I have spent the last month beavering away on Ysolda's Vine Yoke Cardigan from the latest Twist Collective.
Green Vines
I'm so pleased with the final result, it fits perfectly (and co-ordinates with the garden!)
Green Vines
Here are the stats:
Started: 9th October
Finished: 7th November
Pattern: Vine Yoke by Ysolda from the Twist Collective. Size 36"
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in Happy Forest - a destash by from Cardimoon on Ravelry back in June. It took just under 3 skeins
Needles: 5mm
Comments: A super fast and interesting knit. The short rows and the vine pattern made it interesting and all that garter stitch meant it could be knit in the evening watching films or listening to the radio.
It looked TINY when it was finished, however the yarn and all of that garter stitch makes for a very stretchy garment, so after a good block to open up the lace and stretch out the garter stitch it fits perfectly. One very big smiley face for this knit. Thanks Ysolda for such a wonderful pattern.

Now, what to knit next?

That's lovely! I may have to go and revisit the pattern, and I happen to have some Classy sitting here in front of me. It looks fab!

It looks great! All of the details go so well together without being overwhelming. And the yarn color looks wonderful in that pattern.

It looks beautiful and the green is perfect!

The colour is gorgeous and it looks really cute on you. :-D I'm completely out of the loop on new patterns; will have to queue this one now.

Wow! That looks fabulous on you - very shapely! And such a great colour. Damn! I am going to have to knit my own now!
P.s. And that's a sharp haircut! I need one of those too!

Flossie said...

Oooh, it's gorgeous. And you're looking rather lovely yourself Roo. :)

I just fell out with a twist collective pattern. I seem to be utterly pants at knitting clothes! It really is a fabulous green - the color of fresh grass.

That is quite one of the nicest I have seen!

In fact I think I may have to knit one too.

That looks lovely, great colour. I'm knitting the same pattern at the moment and am a little concerned that the yoke pattern is a bit "plouffy" (technical term). How did you find it? Did you make any modifications or did you just do what the pattern said? Photos on my blog, if you can't visualise plouffy.
