Office Casual 2

Finally completed while watching the World Cup, Wimbledon and British Open Golf Championships. Unblocked and slightly crumpled, here it is!

Office Casual 2 (no 1 is here)


Pattern: from Bendigo......................................... Green Gable


Yarn: Bendigo 4 ply 100% cotton
Skeins: 1.25 x 200 gm x 670 m (838m)

Needles: 2mm & 3mm





Modifications: Ribbing with 2mm instead of 2.75mm , number of stitches adjusted to knit in the round

Rose - a wool, cotton and acrylic blend will be number 3 and probably something as plain and 'boring' to knit like its sisters. There's been so many lovely lace FOs from the girls in the knitters community recently and it's tempting to go for something lacy at the collar like Green Gable.


In the meantime, it's back to my baby blankie and stole, I will not succumb to the temptation of casting on anything new until I'm almost done with them!

Office Casual 2 looks nice and classic. The rosey yarn for no 3 looks very pretty. I think Green Gable is a clever design to have lace at the top, for girls like us who don't feel comfortable with allover lace :)
