Not for the shop or anything, just for MEEEEE! I used up a single skein of this handspun wool by Mirasol yarns (from Peru!) left over in my stash. I bought three skeins in New York two years ago, but only used up two for a feather and fan scarf. The kink pattern was described as ideal for a single skein of handspun, so off I went.
I think it’s a really fun pattern and knits up amazingly quickly, though if I did this again, I would make a short version with just the one button like in the pictures that go with the pattern. Though it is nice as a sort of collar as well like in the second picture. And the double wrapped way of wearing it kept me toasty warm on Saturday when I went on a march against the Tory budget cuts/outright attack on public services.
The colour is more accurate in the second picture by the way, a really rich magenta-ey purple.
