Last week I received a lovely email from a lady by the name of Yumiko Sakurai who is a wonderful designer. She asked me if I would like to test knit one of her designs! What a lovely easy knit, although to be honest I was a bit worried about doing the Star Tweed stitch, but after figuring out MY mistake it was really rather easy and very pretty too. I knit this using 1 200gm ball of luxury 10 ply wool and just a smidge of navy luxury. I nearly used every last bit of the light blue yarn so that was great, no leftovers apart from a bit of wool to sew up around the shoulder seams. I just need to find the perfect buttons now (there is an alternative i-cord belt).
