the few modification i have made (on purpose) thus far have been to size the small pattern to an extra small, decrease the size of the crew neck and i have started knitting in rib (dropping needle size) shortly after joining the body.
modifications i plan to make if i get that far.... increase the lenght and add buttons.
....it looked like such as simple pattern....

for those of us who have owned a chenille sweater, you know how wonderfully soft they are and the temptation to knit one is huge.
here is the pattern (no it is not a bathrobe but a cardigan)
the yarn: araucania quellon hand dyed yarn in coloring 08
not sure about the chenille, so i am going down a size in the needles in case it sags. fell in love with the yarn when i saw it but came to my senses after i looked for a pattern that would be able to carry off hand dyed yarn & the difficult drape of chenille.
i am knitting two rows and alternating a skein to blend the yarn because there are huge differences in the coloring…. i am not optimistic.
the alternate: something i know i will knit quick and love for no reason at all.
a bunch of radishes...
