Finn Applöse...

It was a lovely day for here we go walkies.....

Lackie had an itch......

Finn by Kim Hargreaves, Rowan Magazine 36

Yarn used in book: Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran (discontinued)
I substituted:  Rowan Felted Tweed Aran, Shade 725 Teal
(purchased at The Needle Emporium)

Modifications?  Not really - I knit the rib for the fronts and the back as one piece, picked up as per the pattern and knit the body in one piece to the underarms - back and forth on a circular with subtle side seam shaping - just 4 stitches on each side.  After that it was exactly as the pattern was written.

Love the yarn, love the colour, love the buttons, love the fit.  
Can you tell I'm very happy with this?  LOL!

Don't have Rowan Magazine 36?  Never fear!
This design has been included in the new publication,  Kim Hargreaves Vintage Designs to Knit
I looked it up on Amazon, they showed it with a different cover - perhaps different covers were used for the UK and the North American versions of this book?

Now the DH wants one......but he'll have to wait until I've finished my next project
