Pattern: Orangina by Stefanie Japel
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fine, Mariner Blue (just over 5 skeins)
I was really not sure about this one – until I tried it on. When it’s just flat it’s about the same size and shape as a pillow case, which is a bad sign. The ribbing pulls it in nicely though, and I think it’s surprisingly flattering. I’m not sure I’ll want to do seven inches of ribbing on #2 needles ever again, but the results are worth it.
I also really like the way the Cotton Fine shows off the lace. I’ll have to find another reason to use this yarn some time soon.
