Wild blueberries is the perfect color name for this absolutely luxurious Sundara fingering silky cashmere. At 65% cashmere and 35% silk, how can it not be just about the most amazing thing to wear next to your skin? I love how the color variations wind through the yarn, giving it so much more depth and texture than a single color ever could.
I had to look around to find a pattern that would live up to this yarn – I finally settled on Lintilla, because I loved the little bit of ruffle along the edge, and I thought that the size and shape would make a perfect neck wrap for the spring – still chilly enough to need something pretty around your neck, but getting too far into the season to wear something that actually looked like a scarf.
I knit on US 3s and got 19 repeats of the body pattern before I was down to approx 30 grams and had to start the decreases. In the end, I had yarn from the 420-yard skein left over, so I probably could have gone as high as 22 repeats.
GIVEAWAY: I think that the finished project is incredible – probably one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve knit, thanks almost entirely to the gorgeous yarn. I purchased this yarn as part of one of Sundara’s clubs, so it’s not otherwise available, but I used only one of the two skeins I received, so I thought I’d try a giveaway – just leave a comment in response to this post and I’ll randomly select a winner for the remaining skein by April 18th. You’ll love it, I promise!Pin It
