Glymur is a graceful poncho-style wrap, an effortless layer of warmth. Its simple lines and textures flatter most outfits, while its leafy edging gives it a special touch.
Knitted in dk-weight yarn, Glymur is mainly stockinette stitch, with a panel of lace running along one edge. The lace is intuitive and makes this a mesmerizing knit — you will find yourself wanting to finish just one more pair of leaves, and then one more.…
Weissman added, "This project traveled with my husband and me to Iceland and back! It joined us on our favorite hike there -- to stunning Glymur Waterfall -- and so I’ve been thinking of it as my Glymur wrap ever since. This is perfect travel knitting. Each row had a good section of relaxing stockinette so that I could converse with my hubby. And the bit of lace along the edge was easy to memorize and let me see my progress. And I just love this yarn! It has a tweedy, almost rustic look, and yet it is so very soft. With blocking, the lace bloomed, and the stockinette evened out to the most lovely fabric. I will definitely be knitting with Acadia again."
