Fetching #2 Specs
Begin Date: May 30, 2007
End Date: June 2, 2007
Pattern Source: Knitty – Summer 2006
Size Made: One size only pattern
Yarn: 2 balls (50g – 78m each) Debbie Bliss Merino Aran in Chocolate (#325?) – 100% Merino Wool
Needles & Gauge: Size 6 metal Susan Bates dpn’s
Total Cost: Approx. $13.70 (yarn cost $6.35/ball)
Recipient: My mom
Comments: The DB Merino Aran has less yardage than the called for Cashmerino Aran (by approx. 20 yds.) so I needed about 1 1/2 balls of the Merino Aran to make these. Other than that, this pattern is *so* easy and works up so pretty, that I imagine I’ll make lots of these in the future.
