Gypsy Mesh Pullover
Pattern: Gypsy Mesh Pullover/Spring 2004 Interweave Knits
Finished Size: 38" (96.5 cm)
Yarn: Reynolds Gypsy (100% Cotton; 82 yd/50g): #423 gold, I used 10 skeins as pattern called for
Needles: Clover Bamboo US 8 (5mm) circular
Changes: One minor one. I bound off the neck edging knitwise instead of purlwise--I liked this bind off look better.
Comments: I came across knots in the middle of at least two skeins--very annoying--especially what I paid for the yarn.
I like this particular style completed in the cotton fiber, and overall I'm pleased with the quality of the yarn--nice drape and it makes for a sturdy garment. The color is another thing that attracted me to knit this pattern up in the first place so I'm pleased with the gold--it goes with a lot.
I will wear this a lot--especially Fall and Spring. I love it. I've already worn this twice this weekend! I wore it to my cousin's wedding with a skirt and it was great with jeans on another day as well!
