2020 : Striped Esjan
Love the colours. Love the combination of mohair and merino. Love garter stitch and lace.
Having recently finished the Starflake MKAL and loving the photography and styling in the new book Westknits Bestknits Number 3 - Shawl Evolution. How could I resist! I knitted most of the garter stitch sections on long flights over our summer break.
Craft : Knit
Pattern : Striped Esjan by Stephen West. Published in Westknits Bestknits Number 3 - Shawl Evolution
Size : Large
Yarn : Wren & Ollie Sock Yarn (1 skein of each Cinnabar & Vanilla Chai) Concept by Katia Silk Mohair in colour 221 Ochre
Needle : 3.75mm (I was in a rush to pack this project for a trip and ended up with 3.75mm neeldes. Hence I used less yarn.)
Notes : The garter stitch section was perfect for travel while the lace required attention to setup.
