La Bella

The Arabella is done!

P1100159

I’ve written about it before, so not much more to add. I started with a Brooklyn Tweed pattern size and merged it with a CustomFit generated neck, yoke and sleeves for best fit.

I do think it would have looked more structured in a woollen spun yarn, and find that the superwash, worsted spun, Tosh Merino Light makes an almost floppy garment because of its unusual length. But it’s still pretty. I did have to alternate skeins, though to prevent flashing.

Also, the quaker ridging pattern is completely hidden in the variegation of the yarn; but I’ll live with it. Overall, am quite happy with this one!
