shop sample: foxtrot

knit Foxtrot for the 2019 Olive Knits 4-Day Knit-A-Long, and boy, was it fun! I managed to finish in four days (though I made some modifications - more on that below). I used the Knitted Wit Worsted Superwash merino, and loved every yard of this yarn! It is smooth, silky soft, and her colors have an amazing depth that creates a subtly varied solid. We also have a Foxtrot on display in the shop out of Malabrigo Rios/Washted - another great yarn choice! Scroll down for product links.

Finished circumference at bust: 38.4 (40.4, 42.4, 44.4, 46.4, 48.4, 50.4, 54.4, 58.4)"

Modification notes: I wanted a close fitting, cropped summertime sweater, so I chose to make a size that would give me negative ease. I am wearing the third size in from the left and have a 40" bust. I also modified my sleeves to be 3/4 length instead of bracelet length.
