We always encourage knitters to modify patterns to suit their own preferences. Floriduh’s Ellen (left) will have a zipper, and Janfaw’s Ellen (right) got a closer fitting neck.
We love it when shops knit along with us! Wedewschool made her Ellen as a shop model for Haus of Yarn in TN, and reported that a few others from the shop joined the KAL.
And there are always overachievers in any group – one of our most consistent Berroco KAL participants, Zaouli, made both a Helen pullover AND an Ellen cardigan! Go Myriam!
I loved leading this KAL and am enjoying wearing my own version of Helen, which I modified to be a dress. With the last gasp of winter we’ve been experiencing this week in New England, I’ve had more opportunities to wear it than I expected!
