FO Friday: Sleepy Molly

I have a new favorite FO!

Project: Sleepy Molly

Pattern: 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 :).

  1. It’s so beautiful! I want to snuggle it. I have yet to knit much with handspun, because I have no idea how the colors are going to turn out. I would never have guessed based on looking at the yarn!
