Completed: August 2008
Pattern: Jasmine, Nectar by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: Online Linie Java (67% mercerized cotton, 33% viscose rayon), #???, 5x 176yd/50g
Notes: The pattern itself is clear and the style is classic. It definitely has Kim Hargreaves stamped all over it! However, the pattern schematics are not very detailed. Sure, you can go and calculate out more detailed measurements, but that would defeat the purpose of a schematic, no? Also, the instructions don’t tell you what size buttons to buy (I used 1/2”).
Here are the mods I made:
The yarn is very splitty, but it makes up for it with great sheen and drape. It is a bit stiff to work with, but it blocks beautifully. The stitches evened out without any coaxing, and it softened a lot. It also did not grow out the way you might expect a cotton yarn to do.
