Anouk


Anouk was my first real project, and I don't know if you can see the texture in the fabric of the dress, but after I finished I realized that I had been purling by wrapping the yarn clockwise instead of counter-clockwise, which caused every other row to be twisted. It actually looks pretty good (can anyone say "design element"), but after this I trained myself to go the other way with the yarn. Here are the particulars:

Pattern: Anouk from Knitty
Yarn: Sirdar Pure Cotton Double Knitting; 3 balls turquoise, 1/2 ball green, just a bit of the purple
Started: December 2005
Finished: January 2006
Needle size: US #6/4mm
Pattern size: 12 months

I had originally bought a variegated yarn in the turquoise/purple family to do the flowers in, but when I started I wasn't happy with it - not clear enough on the purple pocket. So I tried the turquoise, and felt good about that. I am in love with this pattern. It was an extremely easy knit, and very rewarding as a beginner knitter.
