Alexandra

This has been finished for a little while, blocked earlier this week:





Alexandra from Fitted Knits, using Rowan Plaid in shade "Sea Thistle". I added a little extra length between the decreases and increases, and also after the increases. This version has an extra cable twist right near the lower edge. I settled on doing short sleeves instead of the three-quarter ones in the pattern. With my mods this only took a little under 4.5 balls of the Plaid, in the 36 size. Needles were Denise 6.5mm circs.

Alexandra looks fantastic on you!

Yes, I think I did the extra cable on the body (though I did do the sleeves as per the pattern). The Plaid yarn is gorgeous!

I love that, and the shorter sleeves look great. It looks good on you, I can't wear bulky knits as they make me even bulkier!
