- Pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn A. Clark (from Interweave 'Wrap Style')
- Yarn: Hand Maiden Fine Yarn - Sea Silk (1 skein/400m). This is an interesting blend of 70% silk and 30% seacell. It's nice and soft, but what I love most is the subtle change in colour throughout the skein.
- Needles: Size 6 (4mm)
- Modifications: The pattern calls for 8 repeats of the body pattern. However at 8 repeats this non-stretchy yarn would have been barely large enough to be a headscarf! I did a little research on Ravelry and found that you can get 11 repeats out of one skein of sea silk, together with the neck and edging section. This is a much better size. (IMO)
I do love this pattern -- if you need to whip out a quick gift it's a winner. A very simple, easy to remember repeat that knit's up quickly (especially if you get a yarn that would stretch more, so you could get away with just doing 8 repeats of the pattern).
Now to find a nice box to package it in...
