Here is Tempo.

This is a design by Sarah Hatton, from Rowan's book The Colourscape Collection. It is worked in Rowan's Colourscape Chunky, which was designed by Kaffe Fassett. I made size L, and I used four skeins of the colourway called Ghost - the pattern said 5, and I would suggest going along with that, just in case.

This yarn is lovely stuff. It is very soft and squishy - deceptively hard in the skein because it is wound quite tightly. Each skein started at the same place in the colour sequence, which is very useful, and there was not a single knot.

I like this a lot, and I'm going to wear it to work today!

It's gorgeous! :-)

I also really like the look of the Colourscape Chunky yarn. I might have to nab a ball or two for a scarf. Being softer than Noro Kureyon Scratchywool is definitely a selling point!

I have spent all day trying to figure out what "Dec 1 st at armhole edge as set in next 3 rows, then on foll alt row at same time dec 1 st at neck edge as set in next and 2 foll alt rows" Is there anyone out there who could translate this for me? Help!
