|Worn long, it's light and doesn't add a lot of|
warmth except to the back of the neck and shoulders.
Perfect for summer this way!
|It can be doubled around to be a little warmer|
and add style to your outfit.
|Here I simply added a pretty pin to dress it up.|
At some point I think I doubled the stitches, giving it a slight ruffled effect around part of it. Since I liked it, I did not take it out. When you do the eyelet, you do a YO, then K2 together. On that part I forgot the K2 together! I could have made it wider if I had done that; this way it took a little more than a skein--I finished off the last row and binding off with some leftover yarn from another project.
I should note that I also used not only the eyelet the pattern shows, but I also used an occasional "reverse row" among stockinette stitches to add a bit of variety.
This pattern is easily adaptable to knew ideas, since it does not have a set eyelet pattern to start with. The pattern suggests you vary the eyelet spacing rather than keeping it even.
I did not use the suggested Sanibel yarn; I just picked up some nice soft light yarn over at Michael's.
