FO: Prairie Fire

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.
