I really am so behind in my blogging, you can expect to see a flurry of FO’s, which I need to catch up on. The first is the Urban Troubadour. I loved this pattern from the first time I saw it and just had to make one. Working from the chart was much easier than I thought, except for the cream and brown section in the middle. All the other stripes have a pattern to them (which you can chant in your head as you go). But this section is a 28 stitch repeat which, line by line had no discernable pattern.
It is knitted with Bendigo Woollen Mills 5 ply classic in a range of colours on 4mm needles and even though I got guage, it is just a bit snug around my shoulders. I would definitely knit this again with a few modifications and make it just a bit bigger. Still, It is perfect for chilly Brisbane mornings and I love it.
