I have a new favorite FO!
Project: Sleepy Molly
Designer: Susan Mills
Available: $6 on Ravelry (also available in several CEY booklets)
Yarn: my handspun Sleepy Hollow!
This was, simply put, the perfect pattern for this yarn. The long color repeats are highlighted by Molly’s short rows, and the rib/ruffle design was forgiving of handspun irregularities. It was a delightful knit, very fun and rewarding every step of the way.
I used needles appropriate to the yarn, but kept the stitch counts the same, so my Molly is a bit wider than the original. I hoped that I would have enough yarn to make a long enough scarf for a loop to work — both as a single-loop long cowl, and doubled up. I had juuuust enough yarn to accomplish this goal — it is super cozy doubled up, without strangling me :).
