Weekend FO: Oud

I'm on a roll!

Pattern: Oud Tank from Knitscene this past spring
Yarn: Texere C4 linen
Needle: 3.75mm, 4.5mm
Mods: I knitted shaping in the body pieces. I knitted a hybrid of the two largest sizes to better fit my shape. Due to my apparent inability to read a chart, I knitted a slightly different lace pattern for the collar. I also slipped the first stitch on each row so when it came to crocheting it in place....well, let's just say there may be a little bit too much collar for the neckline.

It needs a good blocking and the colours look a bit weird in this hasty picture; I don't know if anybody else would pick this combination but I really like, ergo it is a success. It's much too late in the season to wear in the sunny weather, but I think it will look nice over a long sleeved white t-shirt now the weather is cooler.

I do love the pattern. This was a great issue for me and there are a good half dozen patterns in it that are in my mental queue; but this was the stand out pattern for me. I'm a sucker for a Peter Pan collar.
