Red Gable

I love this pattern. I'll probably make one for Pumpkin Girl and another one for me. I started with a small then switched to a medium during the raglan length. It's such a snug fit. When I make it again, I'll make it less body hugging.

Cotton Fleece is nice and easy on the hands - I'll definitely use this yarn again.

Green Gable
Pattern: Zephyr Style
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Candy Apple
Needles: Addi Circular in US #6
(04/14/06 - 04/24/06)

Modifications: I lengthened the body and sleeves; and increased at the hips.

What a cute little top! It really pops in the red. And I agree with you re Cotton Fleece: It's so soft and stretch. The perfect combo of wool and cotton!
