Feels like a soft Cloud upon my skin
My oh my... this 4-ply Mongolian Cashmere by Jade Sapphire is heavenly soft and a delight to work with. If you have a chance, and you see this beautiful beautiful cashmere at your LYS, snatch it!!! I recommend this yarn to anybody... You don't have to have some intricate or elaborate pattern when working with this yarn. Just a simply minimalist design will do. The yarn itself will speak a thousand soft words. I promise.
To stay true to my habit of knitting projects at least twice, I used the same Kimono Silhouette like I did with my project Mata Hari.
Only this time, I shortened the sleeves with 50% and I added some interest at the shoulders. Look at this little enveloped detail:
I am so smitted by just that little detail at the shoulders I tell ya! Utterly in love with that design element which came about totally by accident. I was playing around and figuring out certain things and it just came unplanned. Love that!
I also am very satisfied how that enveloped detail wraps around my upper arm:
Ah, I wish you could feel how soft this yarn is on your skin... it is just heaven!
I am also happy with how it looks from the back:
Crisp and clean. I like that.
This whole top is clean and crisp with no intricate stitches at all. Just plain old boring stockinette all over and no finishing edges. I just casted off and boom, that's it.
Also, seaming is almost nihil. Just a tiny little bit at the shoulder, but other than that NO SEAMING. My kinda knit!
100% Mongolian Cashmere by Jade Sapphire
It rocks. Get it if you can. If you cannot afford to buy three skeins, get just one. I have one skein left over and I am planning to knit just a simple simple stockinette scarf. That is all that this beautiful and luxurious yarn needs in my humble opinion!
And get this: I have been wearing my Cloud Top for the past few days and it does not pill.
Now that is a TOP QUALITY cashmere!
