Pattern: Janite by Berroco Design Team
Needle: US 6 / 4.0 mm
Yarn: Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes)
How much?: 5 skeins = 550.0 yards (502.9m)
Colorway: Natural Earth

I LOVED knitting this project….challenging, but not impossible and the end result is so impressive. Just enough bobbles to not lose one’s mind. Made this for a girlfriend’s birthday and she was all smiles. The Patons SWS has a nice long stripe repeat which really flatters the design. It felts beautifully. The handles are a bit of a pain to stuff, but the end result is a nice cushy strap so it’s worth the fiddling. It’s dense enough to not line, although I think lining it would do it justice.
