Off the needles: Lumpy Space by Stephen West

Oh, how we love Stephen West patterns!  Fun and engaging from beginning to end and there’s always something new to learn. I knit this version of Lumpy Space with Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles for a perfect marriage of yarn and project. Watching the interplay of the beautiful colourways (Pheasant, Stone, and Graphite) was pure pleasure as the piece grew – the luscious single-ply yarn seems to glow from the inside and the overall effect is warm and moody.  This turned out to be a surprisingly quick knit, considering the size, and the unique elongated shape makes it a versatile accessory that can be worn as a wrap or scarf.

I opted to use three colours instead of four and three skeins of Skinny Singles was more than sufficient to finish the pattern to the full size. See project notes on Ravelry for information on my stripe sequence.

While we currently have lots of Stone and Pheasant in store, Graphite sold out during our recent sale. No worries, though, if this combination appeals to you, simply substitute any dark charcoal, black, or even dark brown yarn for a similar effect!  🙂
