Da Capo al fine

Actually, Da Capo is one-third fine. I bought the kit in Norway, where Hanne Falkenberg kits and knitting yarn generally are the only items for sale that are less expensive than in the States! The shop in Bergen where I bought the kit has made-up samples of almost all of the various designs so I got to try them on to see what would be flattering and appropriate.
BTW, does anyone else find it curious that a pattern that starts at the bottom is named Da Capo?

Since Da Capo means " repeat from the beginning" yea, a little backwards. It should of been a clue to the difficulty of reading the pattern! Ha, Ha...look nice thou. What a nice rememberance from your trip. How lucky to get to try them on and see the different colorways in person. Keep knitting you'll get there.

Literally it means "from the head" which makes it even stranger.

Hello, I am just beginning a DaCapo kit and would like to know if your increases were twisted therefore a smaller whole. I am a left handed knitter and am trying to figure out what changes I should make to the pattern. Thanks for your help. Gail

Oh... I should have known this last year that they sell such kits in Bergen. We've been there...
I had to byu the kit wothout any testing before... but stopp.... I didn't byu it - my husband gave it to me as a birthday present - so it's okay for me.
