Sometimes you come across a pattern which is a delight to knit, easy on the eye and as comfortable as anything. They're the ones to treasure, and Ysolda's Marin is just such a pattern. Jacqui finished her Marin a week or so ago, and it's on display in the shop. With its gently curved crescent shape and elegant detail, it's a perfect partner for the yarn: Debbie Bliss Luxury Silk DK. Marin is reversible and knitted from end to end, and all that textured garter stitch gives a wonderful supple finish. The drape of the silk needs to be felt to be believed, but it's easy to imagine lots of other yarn options too - a worsted weight or Aran weight would make a gorgeous warm winter accessory. Beautiful and versatile - what more could we ask?
