Opus 1.


Pattern: Opus Spicatum by Kate Gagnon Osborn

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Homestead in 100 approx. 30 g

Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Peat Moss (6277) approx. 28 g

Needles: 4.0 mm / US 6 and 5.5 mm / US 9

This was a Christmas present for my brother’s girlfriend. Both yarn were part of a stashbusting exercise with the Ultra Alpaca actually having been used in the hat for my brother as well. Luckily you don’t really recognize they are the same because the patterns are so different. Anyhow I found this pattern to be very well written and easy to follow, the patterning becoming quite natural and easy to follow without using the chart. The pattern looks very complicated and the outcome is beautiful and very sophisticated. I plan on knitting another for myself.
