Little Tsunami

Picchio by Moda Vera is a beautiful new single ply yarn from Spotlight. Its composition is 70% fine super wash merino and 30% silk which makes it light in weight, soft, great drape and with a slight fuzzy halo. Because of its great yardage it took 2 skeins for me to create my luxurious scarf from the pattern Big Wave from Sublime #602, The Sublime Merino Hand Knit Book. This was an interesting knit as the colours fade and out reminding me of butterfly wings, a must have for Noro fans. Almost hypnotised by the colours unfurling I found it difficult to put this project down.

I needed:
2 balls of Picchio by Moda Vera In dusk
4mm needles

Yarn: 2x $7.99(at Spotlight)
