Pattern: Prairie Fire
Yarn: Miss Babs Yowza, in “Scarlet Letter”
This yarn was originally supposed to be a Briquette. By the time I had separated sleeves and started waist shaping, I had to admit I wasn’t getting gauge, and I already felt like the fabric was too loose. I didn’t want to go up another needle size (I’d already gone up two) and I was also already making the largest size (I notice this designer doesn’t have a large size range). Briquette calls for a DK yarn but when I try it again I’ll either use a worsted weight yarn, or a DK yarn that knits up fat (hello Madelinetosh Tosh DK or DK Twist).
Anyway, I frogged Briquette and picked this pattern instead. I made no modifications at all. This was an enjoyable, fast knit.
