I finished this yesterday evening. There is a fair amount of fabric in that collar, and it takes longer than expected because it is worked in the round, purl all the way.
This morning, a couple of photographs outside - although the sun isn't exactly shining, and the wind keeps trying to blow it off the fence.
I am rather pleased with this. It is flattering to wear - the collar works very well, and the waist shaping at the sides is just right.
To summarise then - this is Clovelly, from Rowan Classic's Coast brochure. I made it in Rowan Classic Cotton Jeans, shade 360 Canvas, and it took 17 balls of yarn, exactly as the pattern says. This is size 16 - (UK sizing, of course.)
And - finally! - I am going to wear it to work today.
I've cast on for Tender, by the way. I'd somehow managed to forget just how slowly fisherman's rib grows. At least it's faster than working in 4 ply.....
