This time around - it was much easier (and faster) to follow the yoke pattern. This is not just because I had already done it once, but because the colors were so distinctive. My first one, done in three shades of gray, was much tougher. The shades were so subtle that I sometimes didn't know which yarn I was using. This time I also added the yoke's motif to the cuffs and the bottom edge of the sweater. This in itself wasn't a problem, but I admit that the cuffs were "fiddly" - best way to describe them!
You will see that I once again opted for toggles rather than buttons - I really like the look. I also chose a playful ribbon for the underside lining - I think that it's a lot of fun!
Speaking of fun - please check out the article and photos below. It also comes with an audio component. Fiddly doesn't even begin to describe how I would feel about such small and delicate knit-work - but I am seriously impressed!
