Is it safe to start dreaming of spring sweaters yet?
We’ve got this terrific linen yarn in from Shibui, and it needs knitting up!
I mean… look at it, it’s so neato! Applying this chained construction to the linen fibre is such a good idea! It makes a nice light and subtle fabric.
If you’re looking for something to make out of this pretty stuff, you shouldn’t have trouble finding something. Linen is a new favourite for many stylish knit designers. Here are a few new offerings that I’ve noticed.
Linium Tee by Bristol Ivy from the KnitScene Summer magazine 2014
Bohemian Tee by Erica Schlueter from Knit Wear Spring Summer magazine 2014
Perkin’s Cove Pullover by Pam Allen form Quince and Co
Outside by Melanie Berg
All these patterns were knit with linen yarn, some of them are knit with Shibui, some of them are knit with Euroflax. We have a nice bunch of that too.
If we all start now we should have springy duds by the time the sun decides to shine.
