Item 5 for the Yarn Knit Along, Coffee Couture by Megan Longhurst from Yarn 6.
MATERIALS: Just under 50g of an 8ply recycled from an op-shop jumper.
ALTERATIONS: None, but I'm tossing up about picking up some of the side stitches and making a button placket for added warmth.
It's a lovely quick knit. Perfect for last minute gifts. Not that there's anything last minute about this one - it's a 2008 Christmas gift for coffee loving friends. Oh, and I've added the pattern to Ravelry if you want to queue it.
I had some help. One of the blokes at work wanted to learn to knit. He did most of a row of double rib.
A larger version for Dad's birthday on Thursday has been cast on. Fingers crossed I got the numbers right.
