I’m in! My Atlas (in Pear) will arrive Saturday, so I’ll start late.
I would have loved to have this for my Iceland adventure last month! It looks like it would have kept out some of the wind, held my hair in place, and snuggled my ears.
It will be great for dog walking next winter.

Beautiful! You’re making me want to cast on. And I think Mallard may be my favorite Atlas color.

Using Atlas yarn as well, eggplant on the bottom and the lime green on the top. The yarn is nice, I would guess somewhere between Aran and worsted weight, lovely to hold and knit with, not splitty at all. It almost feels like chenille to the touch. Great stitch definition and very soft and non scratchy.

Just a started about 30 rows into the back. Knit on!

To reply to an individual post use the Reply that appears to the bottom right of the post, NOT the reply in the big orange box at the bottom left. Orange box posts new comment on the topic. Looks like you did post as a reply to cmcymp. :grinning:

If you look at the post in the upper right hand corner, at the level of your name there will be a “bent” arrow (don’t know exactly how to describe it) that points to the name of the poster you are replying to. If there is nothing there it indicates a post to the topic in general. (At least I’m pretty sure that’s how it works.)

Thank you!!!

. Moving on to neck/hood. At the top, getting ready to join.
