Edgar


This is Edgar. Knitted using a garter carriage on the Brother 940 using my own design. The wool is a standard 4 ply wool. The colour is called Willow. I would say it is Taupe. This has ended up smaller than I had intended. I put it in the machine on a 30c 15min wash and it shrank!!!! A lot! And unlike Cashmere, this shrank width wise by about 5 cm (2.5"), as well as upwards by about 8cm (just over 3"). It does fit me well. I really am smaller than I thought!

Crew neck using short rows.

Set in sleeves using 'half raglan' style.

Mattress stitch used to seam.

3 x3 ribbing
