I loved this pattern since I saw it in the book. The texture is wonderful and I love how stretchy it is. I still want to complete a pair of socks in this pattern.

I truly loved how well this yarn worked. It is so quickly becoming a favorite to work with. The drape was wonderful. I had reservations about the color, the Member of the Month wanted pastels - - colors I am usually not a fan of. But this color worked so well with this pattern. It really does have that faded blue/teal beach glass color.

  1. I love this stitch pattern too. It's the one I've used for my green "Surrounded" blanket. I like the color you used too. Very nice!

  3. I love the texture on that stitch. The yarn does a beautiful job of showing it off, too.
