And I’m significantly blissful Claire has been persuaded into modelling, as a result of though we’re the identical top, we’re totally different shapes. Claire knitted Sarkle within the fifth measurement, and to the common, reasonably than the cropped size of my sweater. She appears to be like unbelievable.
Claire additionally selected to knit her sweater within the Horkel shade of Ooskit. I used to be to see how this darkish charcoal gray would work for this sample . . . .
And simply love how Claire’s yoke appears to be like!
