FO: Enchanted Rose

This was my first experience using gradient yarn. Most definitely not the last one. I see a lot of gradient project in my future.

This project has a unique construction. It started with the bottom edging knit sideways, then you pick up the stitches and knit the body together with the side edging.

I originally knitted this project using lace weight yarn to submit to Wool People. Unfortunately it got rejected. Thus, I re-knitted it again using gradient fingering for my own MKAL.

Here is the original sample that I knit using lace weight yarn:

Finish Date: 10 July 2016
Finished Size on Blocking Board: Wingspan: 127 cm / 50" ; Depth: 47 cm / 18.5"

Here is the fingering weight yarn version:
