I know it’s really hard for a lot of people to visualize what a yarn will look like knit up, especially when it is a self-patterning or self-striping yarn like Urth Uneek Fingering. So as my friend Rosie has progressed on the above cardigan, I’ve thought a lot of people would like to see what it can look like. The thickness of the stripes and the exact pooling are of course dependent on the number of stitches cast on, but I think this gives you a good idea of what the yarn can do. I especially love the ‘pooling’, The stripes are kind of groovy and random, a bit missoniesque. The pattern is Adrift, a simple, unstructured top-down cardie with swingy fronts – the perfect canvas for a stunning yarn. Thank you for sharing your beautiful sweater with us Rosie!!!
