Against all odds…

I am finally able to share this FO as all the colours are now back in stock and ready to ship. Phew. 😉

Here is my finished …against all odds (Max) by Isabell Kraemer – some of you may have seen it at Unravel in February! I know those of you that did mentioned how lovely it felt! As a result, I have been wearing this beauty pretty well non-stop since then and can’t get enough of its slinky, huggy, drape.

I made a few mods from the published pattern, as I shamelessly copied Isabell’s personal version with the striping and raw edges. I also changed the last sleeve as I wanted to keep the top to only 3 skeins – Black Quartz, Yurt and Steppe – so I continued striping the dark and light grey to the end to make the most of my skein of Yurt.

I found that my neckline was quite a bit wider than I’d hoped, so did a quick crochet chain around the bind off, and that tightened the hole up a charm!

I have been hoarding this sweet little button for months now, waiting for the perfect project!

Isn’t it adorable?

I absolutely love the simplicity of this knit. The saddle shoulder construction is elegant and beautiful and the simple stockinette shows off the subtle sheen and drape of the Beyul beautifully.

This is definitely a staple knit as it can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up with skirts or over dresses.

Once again, a huge thanks to Renee for taking most of these photos. Her patience with this goofy model is super-human. ;-P
