I was thinking that this would be a perfect with handmade soap as a gift. Add lip balm and hand moisturizer for a great gift for almost anyone! I was thinking to make those eyelets tiny by purling the yarn overs through the back loop on Row 6 to make it less lacy for the men. When I whip up a sample, I will post it up so all can see.
2-29-20 – It came out better than I thought! So right after you do Row 5 with the k2togs and the yarn overs, on Row 6 when you purl back, purl the yarn overs through the back loop.
Row 6: K2 [p2, Ptbl, P1, Ptbl, P1, Ptbl, P1, Ptbl, P2] Repeat 2 more times, K2
