Comments: I didn't do any double yarn overs in this one, just single yarn overs, and I like it so much better. Takes a bit more yarn to do it that way.


Close up

It's 54 inches from cuff to cuff. I tried it on and it fit perfectly. The cuffs go all the way to my wrists where they belong. It's wonderfully warm and soft too.

Live long and prosper. \\//
