Frost Thread

Finally finished!  I am soaking this tunic in warm water.

Pattern: Frost Thread by Veera Välimäki (her project page)
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Mare (sprinkle of blue and brown in dark navy)
Needles: 4mm and 3.5mm circular needle and DPNs

I have been test knitting from the beginning, but I think I am the last to finish.  On some days, I only had time to knit a few rows.  It was a long journey but worth every stitch along the way. The neckline is so beautiful.

I made sleeves an inch longer. (Thought about making them much longer, but that would compromise the balance of this design.)

Two buttons at the bottom hem to wear it in two ways. 

Details of the shoulder.  It does not quite look like everything was knit in one piece.
