I think this was my very first foray into Knitty.com! I’m guessing 2004?
My version of Grecian Plait
You guessed it – one of my first recycled yarn attempts too! It used to be a fair isle mohair sweater (all over two-toned snowflake pattern if I remember rightly). Actually, I think it was also my first attempt at making knitting needles (the lace portion at the bottom needed 9mm needles, so a couple of dowels got sharpened).
I liked the style, but it turns out my skin isn’t a fan of mohair (too itchy!), and this really isn’t a style that I liked having shirts come past the neckline and sleeves. So it’s gone now to a happier home (I hope!).
I’d still like a solid colour one a lot like the original pattern… must look for soft, but thick yarn!
