I love the grey and orange combo. Can't wait to see how your sweater comes out.

Thank you! Yours was one of the projects I was just looking at. I love your colors too. How many rows of the rust did you do on the neck. I asked already but haven't mastered the platform yet and don't know if you answered. I cast on on orange and did one rib row in orange then switched to the pattern color (light gray).

Hi Sweller. I.m glad I found your Marin. I wanted to see how you were coming along. I, too, am still figuring out the platform on my iPad. :) I sent you a reply to your question just before I found your sweater. Your ribbing looks really great. I wound up running a row of single crochet around mine because it dint come out as well as yours. I'm about to make another Marin so I think I.m going to try your ribbing.

hi tjmojo - thanks for your comment and reply about my ribbing. I am happy with the way the edge looks althougth I think I could even have done fewer rows of the orange, maybe even just the cast on row, although that might have been to few. I'll post a new picture when I finish the yoke - I have about 10 more rounds too go. I struggled with Row 15, which is all one color. What did you do there? (I didn't know what to do with the MC, which isn't called for except at the steek)
