Remember my last post? Yes, that frogging was painful, but it was oh-so worth it. Don’t you think so?

Kir Royale

I chose another colorway of the same yarn, Wollfaktor Luna, adjusted needle size, edge construction and cable width. And now I’m really happy with the result! Worked seamlessly from the top down, the cable panel is worked across in a clever and easy way, while the ribbed trim is just the perfect finish.

This design, Kir Royale, will be published some time in March – would you like to be notified by then? I just set up a newsletter for everyone to join. No spamming, I promise, it’s only for keeping you up to date about new pattern releases and such.
