FO: Gorgeous Girasole

It took me awhile to grab pictures and get this posted, but I am happy to report that I was able to finish Girasole within 24 hours of Christmas…it was 24 hours AFTER Christmas but that’s OK, it is being loved all the same.

I ended up using 6 skeins of Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted to make this but I did make a few modifications:

  • Charts A-D were followed as instructed
  • Chart E was repeated 2 times instead of 3 times
  • Chart F was repeated as instructed
  • Chart G was repeated just once instead of twice.

One of my favorite things about this pattern/yarn combo is that the yarn is incredibly soft and lightweight so it sort of molds to your body – but don’t let that fool you because it’s still incredibly warm and cozy.

This is top 5 favorite knit and I would definitely spend time making this again!

  1. Stunning. I knit a Girasole for a friend as a wedding gift a few years ago and have been wanting to knit another for myself… seeing yours is putting me over the edge, it’s so beautiful in those hand dyed tones!

  2. Stunning. I would love to make this someday. ‘A little more knitting experience needed first, though. So, so pretty in that color way!

  3. That is gorgeous!! I crochet mainly so I’m jealous of you knitters who push out beautiful projects like this!! Great job!!

  5. I was thinking of using this same yarn for a wrap for my mother-in-law to use to keep warm during her chemotherapy. This color is right in her palate- is this the “well water” option?
