I think I've been waiting my whole life for this pattern: Marla, from the always fabulous Needle & Hook. A perfect boat neck, knit in 4-ply at a gauge that makes sense ie. the gauge recommended on the ball band.
This is knit in the inexplicably discontinued Elle sock wool, so it's thin and dense and drapey and warm. I'm a bit glum about this yarn's disappearance; there's so little local 4-ply available as it is,and almost none of it in natural fibres or non-baby colours. Are there any other brands around that are affordable and in solid colours?
