Spice Route by Louise Zass-Bangham of Inspiration Knits, 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 such as Vivacious, our 100% Superwash Merino high twist yarn. The pattern is available in 3 sizes: S (16 x 150cm / 6 1/2 x 60 inches), M (24 x 150cm / 9 1/2 x 60 inches), and L (33 x 150cm / 13 x 60 inches). All 3 only require one skein of Vivacious too!
If you want to cast on in company, Louise is also hosting a knitalong this month in her group. Thanks for another great pattern Louise!
