Trillian: Complete


I am so very happy with this project.  This is another design by Martina Behm.  The Trillian pattern link is HERE.  This is not a free pattern but I am sure I will knit this a few more times. In fact, I am currently working on a blue Trillian.

Many of Martina Behm's patterns call for about 150 grams of sock yarn; much of the sock yarn I have is just 100 grams.  As a result, my Trillian is slightly smaller.  The pattern specifies that you continue to increase until you have a certain percentage of your yarn remaining and then you start the final border.  In the pattern, Martina specifies she increased to 191 stitches before beginning the border.  In my project, I was only able to increase to 157 stitches before I began the border. I ended up with very little yarn left over.  At first I was concerned my project was a little small when I tried it on, but this project grew significantly larger when I wet blocked it. 

I just love wearing this garment.  The yarn was a gift from my friend Belinda.  She got this yarn while on vacation in New York.  The Yarn is Liberty Fibers Merino Superwash Sock yarn and the colorway is called "Chinese Lacquer".  It's so soft and the color is beautiful.
