I thought I would kick off the holiday season (I know, it’s the middle of December, whatever) with a free pattern. Sometimes really beautiful yarn just begs to be knit in a simple, no nonsense, way. I have been eyeing this skein of Handmaiden 4 ply cashmere for a while now, dyed in the ever stunning Nova Scotia colourway.
I would walk around the shop and every so often stop to admire it. Finally I decided to knit it up as a little treat, you just can’t beat cashmere around the neck. I devised this little number for a little texture but mostly to show of the lovely colour. I am already knitting up another one to combat this icy weather!
