Hi, My name is Ingrid, I'm Estonian but currently living in Italy. Three days ago I started forecast (eventhough it's summer here) and have reached this far. You can see that I'm really enjoying the pattern :) Since there are no schematics included in the pattern my work is more difficult (about measuring and sizing), but I'm getting there.
I've made some alterations to the pattern to make it more comfy to work on.
- I am knitting the garter stitch with knit rows instead of purls (it required some attention on the second row, but makes the process much faster)
- I don't turn my work when knititng the bobbles, I simply pass the 5 stitches back to left needle, knit them and then pull 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th stitch over the last knit one. Again it makes the knitting way faster.
