Pattern: Miss BB
by Bonne Marie Burns (ChicKnits)
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Highland Donegal
Skeins used: 13.4
I wore this to the hospital (DH had total hip replacement last week). I felt great! It was a perfect fit! I did lengthen it by 3" from pattern directions. This yarn is a great wool! Just the right amount of warmth. A soft wool, not scratchy. Softer than Irish Tweed. (But it's not Malabrigo soft. It's not merino wool.)
Not too expensive either. ($2.80 per 109yds/50g ball!)
Total cost: $38
Buttons were essentially free. I cut them off an old sweater.
to read modifications and notes in my 'Miss BB' (Ravelry) folder!
I have 6.6 skeins left over. I'm gonna knit another "ChicKami"
to wear with this, and other, sweaters! You know me and my "twin sets"! I think it's a 50's thing! Although I hear they're back!
