The Curious Observer Lace X S Slub 7 Countess Ablaze

This is what happens when you combine two textured yarns together in one project by holding the strands together.

This pattern has a heavy emphasis on stockinette (stocking stitch) which shows off the textured fabric. Sometimes simple stitches are what is needed to really showcase a yarn.
The pattern is designed for one skein of DK weight yarn (approximately 225 metres) so makes for a quick project, perfect for travel knitting or watching TV.
The yarns I've used are:
  • Base name - The Curious Observer Lace
  • Country of origin - South African Mohair spun in Peru
  • Fibre - 72% kid Mohair & 28% mulberry silk
  • Thickness - lace weight
  • Weight - 50 grams / 1.75oz
  • Length - 420 metres / 459 yards
  • Needle size - 2.25mm - 4mm
  • Washing guidance - hand wash at low temperatures

 

  • Base name - S Slub 7
  • Country of origin - South American wool spun in Peru
  • Fibre - 90% superwash Merino wool & 10% Nylon
  • Thickness - 4ply / Fingering weight
  • Weight - 100 grams / 3.5oz
  • Length - 400 metres / 437 yards
  • Needle size - 2.25mm - 4mm
  • Washing guidance - machine washable at low temperatures but hand washing advised to preserve the vibrancy of the dye

 

I've put some yarn combos together to create your own textured knits. These yarns are from Rebel Batches and therefore not repeatable colourways, so once they're gone, they're gone.
