Green Gable #1


Completed the 36 size from the pattern but it's actually a 32 and actual measurements were a 32. Used 2 1/2 skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Lime Light using needle size 6 and size 4 for ribbing. I did do 5 rows of ribbing on both the sleeves & hem I thought it looked nicer than the 3 the pattern called for. Is a quick knit... Will be steaming and wrapping for a birthday gift for next week. have more BSCF in Oriental Jade yarn to make another one too just a bit worried about the sizing for me....will have to make lots of increases in the chest....

Nice job! I just got to the part where I can try mine on, and so far so good with the sizing. Did you use the backward loop cast-on? I'm told that change alone actually makes a big difference to the outcome.

I loved the look of this when you last posted it up, it's great to see if finished. I think the cotton fleece sounds like a lovely yarn for summer knitwear. Well done.

Very pretty! I'm a little concerned, you knit the 36" size, but it only came out to 32"? And you got gauge? Oh dear, then I'll have to make an even bigger size.

Lovely work.
