Can’t decide how best to show off a beautiful yarn in all its glory? Now you don’t have to decide.

Spice Route shows the different moods of a variegated yarn with its bands of smooth stocking stitch, blurry purls, textured garter and strands of colour.

The alternating textures make it reversible - unlike other dropped stitch designs. The vertical bands are edged with stitches worked through the back loop, to ensure good definition.

The optionally beaded ends add a glamorous sparkle; a finishing touch for a special yarn.

Designed to showcase a beautiful variegated or semi-solid yarn.
