Aquamarine Cashmere Ombré Wrap

Happy, happy, happy! That’s how I feel after finishing Purl Soho’s Cashmere Ombré Wrap project last night.

The yarn is 4-ply 100% Mongolian cashmere, hand-dyed in 8 graduated shades of aquamarine. Purls Soho offers three other colorways from which to choose if aquamarine is not your thing.

The pattern used was Seed Stitch.

I tracked each and every stitch of this project—the total is 72,750 stitches for my 20 x 68 inches wrap. That’s a lot of stitches, my friends. Admittedly it started to feel a tad tedious due to the seed stitch pattern, but my efforts give me the blessing of a cashmere wrap to cuddle in next winter.

That is absolutely stunning! I'll be looking up this pattern and the fiber as well. I'm currently doing a crescent shawl in tonal plums.
