Last summer I happened to be home when one of the yarn shops had a huge sale. I got everything I could fit in a small shopping bag for a mere $30. I filled mine with two lots of Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk DK. The blue became the Blue Marigold Vest and the green ended up in a drawer, waiting until I found the perfect pattern.
Enter Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark's Rondeur from the latest Knitty (Spring and Summer 2011). Need I say more?
This is the size 34. I'm not sure how much yardage it used, but it took four full skeins and just dipped in to the fifth.
I was not a fan of the curved hem. Even though it's a pretty concept, I just feel like it would make me look like I was larger. But I loved the lace detailing in the yoke.
