Random thoughts of a fiber enthusiast - mostly fiber related, sometimes coherent

Tangled Yoke

Pattern: Tangled Yoke from Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed

I made the smallest size because I just couldn’t get gauge.  I went down to US #3 to get anywhere close.

Elapsed time on this was a year.  I put it down last winter, when I couldn’t find the time when I was able to concentrate to work on the cables.  A few weeks ago, I sat myself down and just pushed through the cables.  The rest went very quickly.

I used a 2 hole one-row button hole instead of the 3 stated in the pattern.  I was worried that the hole would be too big and the button would slip out.  I was correct.

The button band is still a little flimsy and the buttons are prone to slipping out.  I think some grosgrain ribbon should give the band the structure it needs.

Just in time for fall.
