Do you remember this?
The Chickadee Vest with Mods
Well, I decided to re-visit this pattern and actually work the pattern it’s suppose to have
I again modified the pattern a little – Chickadee Singlet
The original does have the rib hem, I worked garter
And the lacy bit is supposed to be in garter. When I tried that it just reminded me of a beginner knitters project with holes . I also knew I was limited in the amount of cotton I had, as you can see by the contrast crochet around the neckline and armholes – I ran out. So I tried it in stocking stitch. Much prefer it that way
Yarn used is Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Cotton Daffodil (so very soft) on 3.75mm needles
Pattern worked up about 3-6mths size
The pattern is from this old Patons booklet
Have a lovely weekend
Here is another singlet I made from this pattern book
Again with mods :-0
Heartbreaker, again with mods (worked a lace border on bottom and in the round)
Again from Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Cotton New Ochre on 3.75mm
I’m off for a romantic, freeze-your-butt-off holiday.
Will tell you about it on my return – maybe
