Dustin' it up!

Tilted Duster

The Tilted Duster is finished. Cristi took the Tilted pictures for me on Saturday afternoon.

Because of the ribbing, this really is flattering - though you can't tell here...

Buttons...butterfly buttons pick up the blue in the heather and there is a perfect purple line in the butterfly as well. Plain black on the inside for a little more support (and they only had 2 of the butterfly buttons anyway.)


Pattern: Tilted Duster by Norah Gaughn - Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Size: 40"
Yarn: Cascade 220 The Heathers - Amethyst Heather - 6 balls
Needles: Size 9 Denise
Modifications: I knit the sleeves in the round - dropped the 2 seam stitches to do this. I also added a hook and eye at the bottom of the top and above where the skirt starts. When we took these we realized that I needed to move it a little further in since it gaps a bit the way it is. I added this for 2 reasons. 1- so that I can leave the collar open if I want. 2 - because it helps it lay a little better I think.

Thoughts: I really like this. It was a fast knit, its cute and it fits well!

The blue butterflies are excellent. They really do bring out the heather color.

I am so going to knit this! I was waffling, as I though my build might not work with the open front. But you have a similar build to me, and it looks great. I'm gonna have to toss my stash....
