Pattern: Sadie from Rowan 40
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton, Inky – approx 7 balls
Needles: Size 3 and 6 circs
Modifications: I shortened the length of the body by about 4 inches and made the sleeves about 3/4 length.
This top first caught my eye on Ravelry. I had a nice size stash of Rowan Wool Cotton that was frogged from one of my first knits (the Blanket Cardigan from Sarah Dallas) and using one of my favorite features of Ravelry I browsed to see the Project Ideas for the Wool Cotton. My eye caught Chibitora’s Sadie (Ravelry link) and I just loved how it looked with the shorter length.
What turned out to be a very fast knit has been such a nice addition to my spring wardrobe! It can be worn with a pretty spring dress, work clothes or with a t-shirt and jeans which is how I am sure this top will be worn more often.
I’m off to a bar to watch the Final Four – I won’t even tell you what place I am in my boyfriend’s pool. **cough**last**cough**. I got hurt big time when Georgetown lost to Davidson – but I had a great time watching that Cinderella run so I’m not bummed. I still have North Carolina though winning it all so maybe I won’t stay in the basement afterall…. but I think today I’ll be rooting for my sfam’s – Nonnahs – alma mater – GO UCLA! ;-)
