But yes, half-patent with garter stitch again.
To my mind, the texture is beautiful and well-defined.
Two yarns held together: Haapsalu, known to my readers (by Midara, 100 % wool, 100 g/1400 m) and Baltica (also by Midara and 100 % wool, 50 g/250 m).
As you see, the combination of the yarns changes the colour a little bit; laceweight wool adds to the texture. Despite the yardage, Baltica does not feel as a thin yarn. I do not have a typical sock yarn at hand (50 g/200-220 m) neither Aade 8/2 with a similar metrage (100 g/400 m) in order to make a comparative picture of all three and to show the difference. Metrage is important but it is not a whole story because what matters is fiber compositon (sock yarns have 20-25 % artificial fibers) and whether a yarn is tightly spun or is rather airy and fluffy. Baltica is fluffy. I am knitting the whole thing with 5 mm needles. Visually and upon touch the mixture reminds 3-ply Shetland wool that I used for this cardi.
