Troppo Mayhem by Åsa Tricosa is, despite the name, neither too much (troppo) nor too little. Rather, it is just right. Plenty of squishy comfort is knitted in soothing stretches of simple garter stripes; a brief short-row interlude then prepares the way for a decoratively arching cable motif for the finale.
Troppo Mayhem is knitted with lofty, woolly, and wonderfully soft Masham Mayhem from Ginger Twist – a yarn that is slightly addictive.
Each of the three sections is written out row by row. For the cable motif there is, in addition, a chart.
