Woo hoo! A finished Picovoli


Originally uploaded by kerner.

I actually finished this about a week and a half ago, but I've been too sick to feel like posing for a picture. I'm feeling much better now, so here you go!

Project Details:

Pattern: "Picovoli," by Grumperina

Yarn: KnitPicks Shine in Orchid, 5 skeins

Needle Size: Size 4, 24" circular

Skills needed: knit, purl, increase, decrease, casting on additional stitches during knitting (cable cast-on or knitted cast-on)

Pattern Modifications: I knit the top a little longer than called for, and added one additional increase at the waist.

Time to knit: About a month and a half

Final impressions: I'm really happy with the way this project turned out. It fits great and it's very wearable -- I've already used it as a shell underneath a suit for work. I will probably knit it again in another color, maybe as a gift for my sister or mom.
