Daphne



Specs:

Pattern: Daphne - Elsebeth Lavold Book #8 The Enchanted Garden
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold
Needles: Size 3 US Rosewood straights for edging, 4 US Holz & Stein Ebony circular for body.
Size: Women's large
Started: April 3, 2007
Finished: May 24, 2007

Modifications: The pattern called for needle sizes 1 & 2. After making a gauge swatch and comparing the suggested needle sizes for other projects in the book it was obvious the sizes are incorrect. No other modifications were needed. I'll need to take the buttons off and reinforce the band with grosgrain ribbon to give some stability and prevent the drooping and gapping. Other than these adjustments, I enjoyed the project and the yarn blocked out to a very even fabric with wonderful drape.

Your Daphne looks great! I have the yarn and book and want to start on the sweater. But when I swatched, I had to go up to a size 7 needle to get gauge! Guess I knit a whole lot tighter than Elsebeth Lavold!
