The Perfect Pattern for the Perfect Yarn

I’m having one of those fortuitous moments when the right yarn and the right pattern join together to create knitting that’s pure pleasure.

The Pattern is Iris from Sunflower Designs. (Below is a picture of the designer’s original piece, not my version—I can’t take any credit at all, except for having the good sense to find this stole irresistable.)

This pattern calls for 5,000+ seed beads, which I admit I am not using: they would no doubt look lovely, but would seriously reduce the likelihood of my every finishing this piece.

The yarn is Blue Heron Egyptian Mercerized Cotton in Old Gold. (That’s it there on the right.) Note that clicking on the Blue Heron link may induce drooling, lust, and uncontrollable yarn acquisition. I will not be held responsible for the consequences.

Melissa’s misplaced her camera at the moment, so I can’t show you pictures of the delightful union of these two, but I’ll try to correct that situation soon.

Now, if my work would only do itself, so I could stick to knitting.

    That’s so great. I have some of the same yarn coming, different color, for the same pattern. I love the cotton, and Blue Heron’s yarns and colors are simply amazing. I look forward to seeing your progress!

    Looks like a stained glass window! They should have called it the Cathedral Scarf.
