Ravelry Link: Right here!
This project was one of those rare (for me) cases where I chose the pattern first and the yarn second. I knew I wanted to use Vera for this project – I love the texture and the way it takes dye – but there wasn’t enough of any color for me to do a solid version. I guess I could have waited until I could get matching skeins or chosen another yarn or pattern, but I am impatient and stubborn so instead I chose to make a two color version via intarsia in the round.
I decided to do all the seed stitch and the crocheted edgings in the lighter pink and I couldn’t be happier about how it came out. It feels feminine and delicate and just perfect.
I stayed away from knitting summer-y items for so long because I didn’t believe they were wearable, but I can already tell this is going to be a wardrobe stable. I like the tunic-length so I can wear it with leggings. And I think the silk-linen is going to be a nice fabric for my warm climate.
I’m currently working on another intarsia in the round project. I am kind of hooked! In a future post, I’ll compare the techniques I used in each project and talk about which one I prefer.
