Burnt by Kim Hargreaves

I finished a thing! I’ve been fitting it in around other things but the actual knitting time was really quick.

I’ve had this Rowan Cotton Glace for ages so I’m really excited to have finally used it. The pattern is Burnt by Kim Hargreaves from Indigo and I love the simplicity of the shape.

The darts created by decreasing and increasing within the rib give a really flattering fit – but I had to make some alterations. I started working from the medium size then added in extra decreases at the edges so from the waist upwards it’s worked as the small size. I’m so happy with how that worked out – it fits perfectly!

I do love a keyhole at the back… and I happened to have a button in the perfect shade of green which was lucky. I’m tempted to make a cropped version that sits on the waist – maybe next summer!

Thanks again Constance for motivating me with your Kim Hargreaves knit-along!
