A must knit

I haven't had one of these for a while--I see a pattern and have to knit it.

This is in the new Rowan magazine and is called the Kirkwall wrap. The wrap mixes a few techniques--there's slipped stitches that are 'long' stitches (multiple wraps around the needle for s single stitch), and some rows are knit in one color and some in two colors. I think it looks really great.

The yarn is Felted Tweed in a grey and a very dark blue, and the blue reads like black a bit. Thumbs up (two) for this one.
