Finished seaming my Frou Frou tonight and got ready to add the trim, a little concerned about all the changes I'd made to the pattern. Then I discovered...
...there was not enough yarn!!!!! EEEEK! TLC Lustre has been discontinued for ages!
Thank goodness, Herrschners has a bunch of colors in stock. Not just dark green, but also the lovely dark red Claret. The swatch I whipped up with Claret on the Bond machine was elastic, lustrous, gorgeous. Not only that, but the price was $1.27/ball!!! I stocked up.
NOTE ON FROU FROU PATTERN ERROR:
A lot of people have been having trouble with the trim not flaring out. I did a swatch on one small section of my sweater to test. Based on the photos and the logic of the stitch pattern, I think the problem is in Round 2. If you modify it to the following, the trim flares out about 25-30% by the last row.
Round 2: Ch3, draw up a 1/2" loop in next sc, sk next sc, draw up a 1/2" loop in next sc, yo, draw yarn through 3 loops on hook, ch3, *draw up a 1/2" loop in same stitch as second leg of last cluster, sk next sc, draw up a 1/2" loop in next sc, yo, draw yarn through 3 loops on hook, ch3; rep from * around, sl stitch in third ch of turning ch to join.
I suspect it also helps to crowd the sc base of the trim (Round 1) when doing the front of the body. That is, do more than 1 sc per row. I did 3 sc every 2 rows, though this may turn out to be too much.
