This is a truly stunning piece of knitting eye candy! Pat made this glorious version of the Viajante pattern by accomplished designer Martina Behm. This is a particularly popular pattern right now, and with good reason. It’s a very, very easy pattern to knit (all knit stitch, with a few simple increases and decreases), there’s almost nothing you can do wrong, sizing is a non-issue, and the result is both dramatic and practical, suitable for both formal and casual use.
Pat used three and a half skeins of Malabrigo Mechita in a beautiful, speckly turquoise colour for this joyful splash of colour. But you could use any fingering, light fingering, or heavy laceweight yarn to good effect. We think it would be just as nice in Fleece Artist 2/8 Blue Faced Leicester – two or three skeins depending on the desired length.
Terrific project, Pam! Thanks for sharing.
