A few months ago, Stephen West was kind enough to ask me to test knit the Earth & Sky pattern for his mystery knit-along! I was extremely honored and excited to be a part of this project. After much deliberation, I decided to knit the pattern in Llama Lluxury – a supersoft wool that has a texture very close to cashmere.
As I have said before, don’t let the intarsia scare you off! It is very clearly explained in the pattern. Yes, there are a few ends to weave in, but as long as you weave them as you go along, it is not so cumbersome. Here is what the intarsia wraps look like from the back:
- Pattern: Earth & Sky by Stephen West; $6
- Yarn: SWTC Llama Lluxury; Midnight, Pewter; Cream colorways
- Needles: Size US5 32″circular needle
- Size Made: small
