Kim Dyes Yarn Cheesecake DK is every bit as rich and luxurious as you could hope it to be. This merino silk blend has *stitch definition* and enough silk sheen to glow up a cloudy day.
Loops Trooper Rachel savored every Cheesecake stitch while she knit Åsa Tricosa's "Troppo Mayhem" wrap. It's got all the toppings-graphic asymmetric stripes on the bias, easy and creative short rows, and a stunning cable motif that pops on a garter stitch background.
And Åsa's pattern is chock full of details, sketches, photo tutorials, and links to video tutorials...if you feel intimidated, don't fret-this pattern will take you through all of the techniques! We just love Åsa - she's a Star in Knit Stars 5.0!!
Rachel knit her Troppo Mayhem with 3 skeins of Kim Dyes Cheesecake in Silver Lining and 2 skeins of Black Cherry on Size 7 needles.
