I love the sheen to this yarn but it is slippery! I found that if I wound it into a tight-ish ball and put that in a small ziplock bag, it doesn’t get too tangled.

I had tried to adapt the pattern to knit-in-the-round but the stitch pattern makes that difficult and so I’m doing it exactly as written. Shocking! ;)

I do love the stitch pattern… almost like chain-mail. It’s tedious to knit but really lovely design.

Apr 29: Finished knitting and decided to single crochet the seams up the sides. They are going to stand out anyway, so might as well make it look like a design feature!
