Let me tell you seven things about my Sev[en] Circle neckpiece:
1. This pattern is all sorts of awesome!
2. The seven circles, of varying sizes, are knitted in the round and remain connected through a series of stitches which are worn at the base of your neck.
3. I started this project at class taught by the designer Kirsten Johnstone at Sunspun Fine Yarns (my local wool shop) and I will admit to being a little star struck at the beginning as I’d been a long time admirer of Kirsten’s knitting and sewing!
4. This project was a great confidence builder for this novice knitter and it also re-ignited my love of knitting.
5. There was lots of casting on and casting off, but it was good practice and oh so worth it.
6. I purchased two balls of Sublime’s Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK in colourway 337 Elkin for this project. The yarn was divine to knit, feels soft against the skin and I adore the colouway. As long time readers will know, colour is ALWAYS important!
7. The Sev[en] Circles neckpiece is surprisingly warm and I suspect it won’t be the last time I knit this pattern.

Ooooh! I love this! I wonder if I can knit one in time for fall/winter in the US? I should probably cast on now… 😉
I have great confidence that you can Sarah. Cast on and go for it! I’ll check back in with you in 6mths!
Gorgeous scarves – BUT the shoes DEVINE 😄
Thanks for the knitting and shoe love. I patiently waited and waited until these yellow brogues went on sale. They were well worth the wait!
Love your necklace. Looks just perfect for Brisbane’s winter when a scarf is usually too warm.
Thank Carmel. I think that Sev[en] Circle will be the perfect accessory for a mild Brisbane winter.
Really love this!
Love the blue against the orange of your top. If only I could knit without ending up in a cursing rage!
Thanks Kirsty. It sounds like you might need to stick to sewing 🙂
Lovely Anna! A warm and not pokey neckpiece sounds perfect, and I also admire Kirsten’s gorgeous designs – thanks for the heads up on sev[en]! Gorgeous colour and styling, as always 😉
Thanks Nic. I’m really pleased with how this project worked out.
How interesting! and really pretty. Might try this, something different.
totally cool shoes…
I think you could safely say that it’s a modern knit Coco. Brightly coloured brogues are a favourite of mine… I might actually be developing an addiction.
Wow, hadn’t seen this pattern before but it’s amazing – it’s already added to my Ravelry list & I’m considering what to knit it in:)
It is an amazing pattern Charlotte. Kirsten the designer is super clever. I hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I did.
Turned out gorgeous lovely lady!
Pretty, pretty, pretty and so interesting to see how it all comes together at the back of the neck. I bet it’s so warm and snuggly yet understated unlike a scarf/cowl. xx
knitting love… must check this pattern out…
