FO: Versio

SO so sooo excited to show you my finished photos of Versio:
I picked up 4 out of every 5 stitches around the neck, and did a teeny rib to finish up the hood and neck. The original pattern had a slip stitch edging, but it still rolled on me, so I decided to do something that would match the cuffs and hem.

I chose to rib the cuffs and hem (instead of the split openings the pattern suggested) because I absolutely love the look of ribbed hems. My second choice would've been a turned hem, but since this is knitted top-down, it would've required some gymnastics I wasn't up to.
The hood is created by knitting up from a provisional cast-on, increasing in a middle section, then sewing or grafting the stitches together to make a T-shape. 
I'm really happy with how it turned out, and it's super comfortable (I'm wearing it today!)

Speaking of happy things, have you entered my giveaway yet? Just a few more days until we pick a winner!
