Forbes Forest

I've been meaning to post this here for a while - I finished Forbes Forest a little over a week ago and I am very happy with the results!

Forbes Forest 2

I used 6 balls of Knit Picks MerinoStyle in 'Moss' and added a few pattern repeats to make it longer. The texture is amazing and it was a blast to photograph!

    That really is lovely. I wasn't that struck by the pattern in the book, but I can almost feel the texture of yours just looking at the pictures... plus I'm, just finishing a sweater in Merino Style, which I've really enjoyed. Lovely work!

    Fantastic! I didn't give Forbes a second look when I flicked past it in the book - now I'm definitely casting on!
