FO: Secret of the Stole

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:33 pm by rynserenity

I feel just oh so chic wearing this.

Pattern: Secret of the Stole (*********), by DK the Nautical Knitter
Yarn: JaggerSpun Superfine Merino, in the colourway Basil.
Needles: US 6 Susan Bates straights
Modifications: None. I knit the smallest size as dictated by the charts, and this still came out huge! I blocked it on my bed, and even with both points wrapped around the edges, I still could have blocked it out more!


See? It’s enormous!


(I can’t stop photographing this! It’s so pretty!)

This was such a fun, easy pattern that produced absolutely stellar results! The JaggerSpun was an absolute champ to knit with and to block. It is beautifully soft, drapes like a dream, and is deceptively warm to boot. Everything I look for in a lace yarn! The green did bleed a teensy weensy bit when I soaked it to block, though. Just enough to turn the water a very pale shade of mint green.

The best part about it? I still have at least 400 yards (maybe even 500!) of Superfine Merino to play around with! Who’s the next victim lucky contestant?

Thank you again DK, for such a fantastic pattern! I can’t wait for SOtS II!
