Nina modified her version by working fewer rows of neck ribbing for a simple crew neck, instead of the mock turtle neck in the original.
The lovely mottled wheat colour comes from using one strand of Drops Brushed Alpaca, in colour 19 ‘curry’, held together with one strand of Manos del Uruguay Marina, in colour ‘filigree’. The whole sweater used just 6 skeins (150g) of Brushed Alpaca and one skein (100g) of Marina. So, it feels as light as air and as soft as a cloud.
Combining different yarns like this can make the simplest of projects come alive with depth of colour. Ask Nina for her advice about yarn and colour combinations for any project you have in mind!
