Inspired by Cecelia Campochiaro and her stellar book, Sequence Knitting: Simple Methods for Creating Complex Fabrics (learn more about the book and how to buy your own copy here), sequences is an addictive, 2-color knit that is both cozy and elegant to wear! Available in 2 sizes, the larger size is ample enough to wrap yourself up in on a chilly day, while the smaller version fits nicely around the shoulders or under a coat. Shown in Shibui’s newest yarn, Drift, a velvety soft, lightweight worsted weight yarn, is the ultimate luxury yarn with 85% extra fine merino and 15% cashmere.
While this pattern is shown in a worsted weight yarn, it can be knit in DK or fingering weight yarn, however the final measurements will be altered.
