Pattern: Hoarfrost neck warmer by Anne Hanson
Yarn: PoshYarn Sadie sock (50%merino, 50%tencel) in Bats in the Belfray
Needles: 2,5mm addi 40cm round needle and 3mm dpns
Knitted size Large but on smaller needles and substantially tighter gauge - it came out wonderfully snug. The crystalline lace pattern is gorgeous. I love how it looks and feels. The bath transformed Sadie sock yarn so soft, without taking away the incredible shine it gets from tencel. Absolutely Fabulous!
Btw. it took maybe 8-9 hours in total to knit this. It is not a fast knit but definitely worth every minute. I have approx half of the skein of Sadie sock yarn still left and I'm thinking of knitting coordinating wristlets of it, with the same lace border that in the Hoarfrost.
