At last my Cup O’ Green is finished and photographed! The final product is incredibly comfortable and I love the yarn. First, some photographs for you, then the stats for those interested.
Pattern: Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier
Yarn: Hempathy, color Vivid Green (017)
Needles: US 4s and US3s
I did make some modifications which can be read in my journal on Ravelry. One of them included ripping out 3 inches or more after it was finished and blocked. I just didn’t like the length. It is now shorter and a bit less wide. I LOVED the yarn. It was so much softer on my hands that knitting with linen, but gives the same wonderful drape. It bloomed in a lovely way after washing and is very soft. It’s lightweight for warmer weather, but I think it will be great for layering in cooler weather. I was so excited to knit this pattern that I dropped all other projects to make it. It was worth it. *happy sigh*
