I became totally obsessed with this the moment I saw it.  The pattern calls for Rowan Mohair Haze which I love, but when I saw this I immediately thought, Kidsilk Haze, so I raided my KSH stash and came up with a beautiful color combo.  I then headed to my local yarn store to supplement as I was just one color shy.   This is knit from bottom up in two pieces, front and back, then seamed.  I adjusted the pattern so I could knit it in the round, still bottom up, then will separate at the beginning of the sleeve increases and at that point knit front and back separately.  I see this with jeans or with textured hose and boots.  I won't hurry with this but I'll still plan to have it finished by next fall.  It's going to be a great knit to pick up when I get the old KSH craving.  Which is often.  

Note: When substituting yarns, make sure you can achieve the same gauge and similar drape, and if you can, then you should be ok.

  1. How cool! Can't wait to see your version!

    1. Thank you. I hope it turns out as pretty in real life as it does in my mind! I'm now on the 4th stripe, so far so good!

  2. Just love this pattern and your colour choice is fabulous as always. If you're on the 4th stripe already it will be finished before you know it.

  3. I just unpacked my order of Kidsilk haze : ) What are people mixing it with? Cotton? Wool? Just curious as it's so fine. The colours you chose are gorgeous!

  4. So pretty, I can see why you are obsessed! Alas, mohair and I ... we tend to box together more than knit together! I love your color choices, it will be lovely, I'm sure.
