two tone twist

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Hey friends!  I've been working on getting this simple yet luxurious pattern written up for sometime, and finally found the time.  Yippee! 
It uses just two skeins of Woolfolk Far.  If you've never felt this yarn, it's a true dream.  It is so soft.  Soft like cashmere.  
It's one of those knits that you don't have to pay attention to while knitting it.  Even better.  It does require knowledge with the provisional cast on and the Kitchener stitch.  But heck, if you don't know how to do either of those, YouTube does!  And learning a new skill is what it is all about.  
The piece is reversible so you can show just one color.  The simple twist lets both colors show.  
I intended for it to be made with tonal colors.  However, since knitting is all about being creative, you can use any colors your little heart (BIG HEART) desires.  
I honestly wish I had this in every color combo.  It adds that perfect amount of warmth on chilly (cold!) days.
