used the long-tail cast on instead of the cable cast on.. didnâ€™t realize it called for a specific one until i read the notes on the last pageâ€“ woops! hope it still turns out..
i donâ€™t think i did the pick up and knit part across the front panel right, especially since i used the long tail cast-on, which made it roll up in front..
all finished! i decided not to do the picot edging and just use a crochet bind off which gave a nice clean edge.. i used worsted weight yarn instead of dk weight called for, and the picot edging just proved to be too bulky.
i rated this project a medium for a few reasons:
â€“ first time using circular needles
â€“ first time using â€œpick up and knitâ€
â€“ it tested my (short) patience factor at a few parts
having done it once already though, the next one will be much easier. so iâ€™d say that this project will easily transition you from a beginning to an intermediate knitter :-)
