Som helhet kan jag bara ge Splendour fulla poäng. Rowan Kid Classic är en glädje att arbeta med. För den som har en mycket känslig hud kan det kanske kännas lite stickigt, det innehåller ändå 26 % mohair. Modellen är väldigt lyckad, Kim Hargreaves har gjort ett superbelt arbete, igen. Jag stickade storlek S, och är mycket nöjd med hur tröjan sitter. Boleron är stickad från höger ärm till vänster ärm, men har aldrig hopplösa mängder med maskor på stickorna. Den lilla picot kanten runt resåren är speciellt dekorativ, och bidrar till att kanten inte ger efter och blir för lös.

All in all, I’m willing to give Splendour full points. Rowan Kid Classic is a pleasure to work with. Those with very sensitive skin can react on the mohair in the yarn; it is perhaps a bit itchy for them. The pattern is a winner, Kim Hargreaves has done it again. I knitted size S and it is a perfect fit. The bolero is knitted from the right sleeve all the way over to the left sleeve, but there is never a hopeless amount of stitches. The little picot edge is not only decorative, it is also stabilizing the ribbed edge.

It looks lovely on you!

What are you casting on now that you have a spare set of needles...

Thank You! Next up is a poncho my older daughter has asked for for a while, and then Elfin.

Splendour looks so cozy and seems to fit you perfectly! Just the sweater to keep you warm with all that snow I see in the background...

It looks like a great design too. I am a big fan of Kim Hargreaves myself.

Ihana tuo Splendour!! ja sen väri on ihana!

Sinut on haastettu, vilkaise blogiani!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! The picture of you with the backdrop of snow is BETTER THAN ROWAN LAYOUTS! You need to be a model.
