FFO: BETTNA cardigan
Finally Finished!

I had a hard time with this yarn!

It tweeds heavily, but the prevailing overall color, after all the colors tweed together, is an olivey mud.


So I experimented with the yarn colors...and got a nice appearance by using 5 separated skeins across the BACK rows...and 3 sep skeins for the FRONTS and SLEEVES.

This is the FRONT of "Bettna":


This is the BACK:


This is the book, with the model BETTNA on the cover.


Used 11 skeins of CRYSTAL PALACE "TAOS" in colorway #15
"Chaco Canyon" (1408 yds)

Well, I'm gonna wear it tonight...with a khaki skirt and a leaf green top. This Chaco Canyon should be very versatile for wardrobe change-ups.
