I love Pam Allen’s patterns for Quince and Co. They are always beautiful and have small details–like Merrifield, which features a square neckline and the use of slipped stitches to create cool cables.
This was such a fast knit. I don’t know why it was finished in just a handful of days and not any marathon knit sessions. But I think it’s shape, drape, and boxier fit will be perfect on my petite frame. The kestrel yarn grows with wear, so I’m excited to see how the finished product looks.
All it needs is blocking. I didn’t make any mods, knit the second smallest size because I’ve used kestrel for garments before and find that it grows and my frame (particularly my torso) is very petite, and used the same color way as the sample–urchin. I think, of the three color ways I’ve used before, this is by far my favorite.
Finished snaps, soon.
