Hildis ta da!
Hildis, by Lisa Richardson
for ROWAN YARNS Select Soffili Yak
(limited edition yarn)
for more details, see my Hildis project page!
I have to say that when I saw this knit up at the Harrogate Stitching show last November, it was LOVE! The yarn is a Rowan Select (limited edition) so once it's gone, it's gone!
You might be able to knit this up in Kid Classic...just a thought...of course you'd need to swatch!
The pattern was perfect as written. The pockets line up on the exact row that they should to keep the pattern correct....the fronts are facings that fold over....the collar, oh the collar!
The ONLY change I made was the light band that highlighted the raglan shaping. I really liked the idea of keeping the edges in the two colours and having them butt up against each other....matching the edge stitches on the collar!
All in all a great knit, fabulous design, DIVINE yarn!
Thank you +Rowan Yarns !

PS: Next Project? CROCHET baby! (I always think of crochet as being a 70's kind of thing....which made me think of Austin Powers movies....but wait until you see!!!)
