Little ranunculus, I’m so infatuated with your lovely lacy yoke & loosey stitches.

Admittedly I struggled a little at first with the loose/slightly sloppy stitches (my nature is tight & tidy) but I backed off and chilled the f out about it, knowing (hoping) blocking will magically straighten everything up and the loose gauge really does give it such beautifully airy drape.

When I got to the bit where I had to decide short sleeves or not, I couldn’t, so I put them on hold and went on …at this moment, I’m lost somewhere between half and three quarter with some ribbing.

I didn’t modify the length on this at all, I got nostalgic for the oversized cropped 80’s sweatshirt shape of it.

A morning of finishing up.

Sleeves to match the hem.

Totally not blocked, but not totally as sloppy stitches gross as I was anticipating!

This is the prettiest textured yoke ever, gosh, I just adore itΒ Β πŸ’• and I would love to make a less airy worsted weight version ..but alas I am a fireball. (not even entirely sure I can survive this dk weight cotton/wool)
