Here it is, the finished Lucky. I don't know what happened - but it grew a lot between sewing in the last yarn end and trying it on for a midsummer night's photo session. Maybe I just shouldn't have centrifugated it? Can I shrink it back to the close-fitting wrap it used to be?
Sizing not considered, this is a summer wrap in disguise. It should be knitted in cotton. I chose wool instead. There are people who don't wear wool in summer. I am not one of them. Rowan 4 ply soft looks and feels like cotton, so no one will know but me. And other knitters.
I will never knit something "sweet" and monochrome again. It is just too boring. I liked the yarn a lot, and that's it. Been there, done that.
I was surprised to find that although published in a book for relatively new knitters, the pattern gave no clues as to the best way of increasing and decreasing. Not many clues at all in fact. Hadn't it been for the very popular knitalong I wouldn't have managed the raglan recalculating or the only working way to sew the neckband to the body.
