Peony Twist finished

…minus the buttons.  I closed it with pins so excuse the front closure.

I know several people use Fridays as their day to post about finished things but I write about them when it happens.

I like the fit (see my Ravelry notes).

The color isn’t too bad either.

The little wave pattern is very nice.  I don’t think my shoulders are this broad.  I look like a linebacker!

Pattern: Tangerine Twist

Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted

Color: Peony Color #5606, Lot# 7595

Needles: US 4, 6, and 7

Size: Medium (39.5)

I used 7 balls of yarn but with shorter tales with casting on, I might have had enough with 6 balls of yarn.  I ripped out my swatch and used it as I thought I was going to run out of yarn.

According to the pattern, I should only need 8 buttons for this size.  Some how I ended up with 9 buttonholes.

Would I make this pattern again?  Yes.

I need to figure out what I’m doing for buttons first.

  1. Very pretty….looks nice on. Good job.
    I’m sick with some sinus thing….work 1/2 day and came home. I’m off the next 2 days so hopefully I can recover…..what a waste of 2 days being sick!
