The delicate-looking lace edging is worked first, then the project is turned and the garter stitch body is added to live stitches along the lace. Carthamus can be knit in two sizes - a long, luscious scarf for wrapping many times or just once, or a smaller shawlette that perches on the shoulders.
Kirsten says she chose Sebastian for the wide variety of available colors. She prefers to choose the colors for a multi-color project in person and her LYS, Purl Soho, is a wonderful place to see many of Anzula's colorways.
She also chose Sebastian because of the drape the seacell gives the yarn; with its squishable softness Sebastian is a great yarn for scarves and other accessories that will lie around the neck.
