My brother's Christmas gift is now all done. It still needs a wash and a block but it is otherwise ready to go. This is a good day to finish it too since it is his birthday today. I'd wish him a happy birthday but I'm pretty sure (and I certainly hope) that he doesn't read the blog.
Pattern: Jackyll & Hide
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran. 3 balls of white.
Needles: 5mm addi circular (I used a version of the magic loop method because I didn't have any double pointed needles in the right size)
Modifications: I changed the decreases along the top and made them paired decreases with a couple of stitches between. The only other change I made was to the distance between the end of the ribbing and the beginning of the eyes; since the pattern says it should be 4 inches but the diagram says 5 inches I took the average and did 4.5.
Ken helped me get a modeled shot:
