Create 2

This was the very last thing I finished in 2012. I actually pulled it up from blocking on Jan 1st, 2013 and wrapped it up for the recipient to open a hour later.

This is written to be a lot longer, but when I finally recovered from the wool fumes I realized that there was no way I'd be able to make it the length suggested.

I sat for a few moments and thought. How could I make this work? Suddenly I realized I didn't have to use the provisional cast on to graft the two ends together ... I could use it to knit from! I decided to add a garter stitch border to each end and add in buttons.

Pattern Thorny y Lisa Villarreal

Modifications: Shortened, added end borders, buttons, and button holes.

Thank you!

I have a ton planned. LOL But if I get to it or not depends on the amount of commissions that come it.
