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.
