Farrah

Punky
Farrah is done!

Pattern: Farrah by the Berroco Design Team

Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Conch, 9 1/2 balls (1155 yards)

Needles: US 8/ 5.0 mm

Time: 2 months

Modifications: I had a really hard time getting gauge with this sweater. I think it was actually designed for a DK or a Sport weight yarn. So I decided to use the fabric that pleased me most and knit a smaller size. I modified the neck opening to be 60 stitches wide, rather than 80. I also lengthened the sweater to be more of a tunic length, and knit garter bands on the hem, neck, and sleeves.

Things I would change: Even though I made the neck smaller than directed it is still wider than I would like. If I knit this again I would make the neck 50 stitches wide.
