Weekend FO

Only a month after I FO'd it, may I present, The Rara.

Pattern: Antifreeze from Knitty
Yarn: King Cole Merino Blend DK, about 2 balls; Manos Silk Blend for the contrasting pink
Needle: Various, from 3.25mm to 4mm
Mods: Many, though less than The Jonty. It took less rows to reach 7 inches for the face hole (though again, less than the Jonty - which makes no sense at all) so that led to a few other tweaks. I went down needle sizes for the face hole, and then did an icord bind off instead of crocheting.

Oh, and I knitted a huge intarsia flower on the back, using a free hibiscus colourwork chart from this website.

It turned out even better than I anticipated, and though I'm not overjoyed with the intarsia and was afeared it would be all bunchy, my fears were not realised. I think she's going to love it.
