Lovely test knit for Mary Annarella. Size 31" using 2.8 skeins of madelinetosh Pashmina. Great pattern with horizontal bust darts, I-cord bind off, princess seam-line increases at hip, and other goodies. Full disclosure here on my Ravelry page.

In our neck of the woods not many people have air conditioners, including us. Trust me to finish a wool sweater on the hottest day of the summer. I was sweltering, but couldn't wait to post this!

  1. That looks gorgeous, Kristen. I have *got* to try that yarn! Did you have to alternate skeins or no?

  2. It came out beautifully! Love the color and shaping. I always use horizontal darts in all my projects, they help the garment to "sit well" on the figure. I could imagine how wonderful the pashmina wool was.

  3. No, I did not alternate skeins or rows. I was worried about that, but it has no problem with colors pooling, etc.
