FO Friday: Tokyo Tower Bandana
This week's FO is the project I knit during my trip to Kansas City at the beginning of the month: the Tokyo Tower Bandana by Olga Buraya-Kefelian, which I knit with a skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Extra yarn.
If you haven't used this yarn before, it's worth seeking out - oh, the softness! It's really delightful to knit with, and once I blocked my finished project, the fabric just got squishier. I've been wearing it a bunch ever since.
The pattern was pretty easy to follow, with the caveat that there is a lot of counting once you get to the lace detail. I got off on my stitch count a few times, but was able to catch it each time to rip back and fix the mistake to get back on track. The frogging was well-worth it - my eyelet Tokyo Tower looks perfect!
