Surprises await the knitter as the shifting spirals of black and white broaden then taper, gather then fade, knitting together in ever-varying shades of grey. A touch of red, bold at the border then scattering outward toward the center, defines the swirling shape before making one last appearance in an elongating run down each sleeve. This yarn is an unusual blend of linen and wool that produces an intriguing fabric that manages to be robust yet supple, rustic yet sleek. A quick knit without a bulky look—what could be better?
