Pattern: One Skein Wonder by Stefanie Japel
Yarn: Brown's Cotton Fleece in Twilight Green
Needles: Denise Size 8
I finished Tempting II Thursday night, and have never been so glad to finish a project! Faithful readers will recall I frogged the entire sweater when I was eleven inches into it. I then reknit it, two sizes smaller. The neckband took me three tries before I was happy with it. I ended up knitting the final two rows on size 5 needles, and the last row was K2tog all the way around. Then I knit the band on the size 5 needles as well, and decreased one stitch from the body on the only the right size of the band, except for the back where I also decreased the body on the wrong side of the band every other time. Feel free to comment or email me if you need clarification on what I did. I think anyone knitting this pattern will understand what I did. The neckband seemed to cause problems for several knitters over at the Sexy Knitters Club.
