I’m swatching for my Elizabeth Zimmermann Icelandic Overblouse pattern. This is my first time working with this unspun. The fiber is like a very thin pencil roving, that can drift apart if you’re not a bit vigilant. I’m looking for a 4 spi gauge. Often EZ’s patterns call for using the fiber doubled, which would make me feel more confident. I love these colors. The “cakes” of unspun hold possibilities. You can find your own Icelandic “cakes” at Schoolhouse Press. And her is a wonderful article on the Unspun Icelandic yarn over at Knitters Review.
