Fast FO found at Wendy’s Drive-Thru
Okay, I’m not clever enough to work the fast food angle into the title, so that’s all you get. Here’s the finished Drive-Thru with Sweetie Girl modeling it. Fits great with some room to grow even. I had to rip out the first neck, because it looked more like a mock turtleneck, and Sweetie Girl complained that it was too itchy. She’s quite happy with it, and so am I.
Needles: KnitPicks Options sizes 7, 6, and 5

Thoughts: Yes, it truly lived up to its original name, the Quicko-Cheapo. Super easy to knit, the instructions were clear and well-written. As for modifications, I eliminated the last set of decreases, because it brought the neckline too high. I frogged back to the row just after the second set of decreases, put the short rows in, and worked the neck. It went into an overnight soak with lots of Sweetie Girl’s hair conditioner rubbed into it to soften it up. It helped a lot. I definitely recommend this pattern, and if you want a not-itchy yarn, check out LotusKnit’s done in KnitPicks Swish. In fact, I may make one for Sweetie Boy using Swish but all in one color.
