NEW Spring YARN: Diamond Luxury Caravan

April 22, 2016

For the summer, I want a flexible yarn that works up easily and is silky to touch. Introducing Diamond Luxury Caravan, which blends cotton, linen, and silk with nettle. Nettle is linen’s eco friendly cousin that adds supreme softness to cotton blends.

With the drape of linen and a touch of silk, the gorgeous natural blend creates a cool and drapey knit perfect for the warmer weather.

Composition: Linen (40%), Cotton (32%), Nettle Fiber (18%)  & Silk (10%)
Gauge: 22 sts / 10cm (4″) and 28 rows
Needle: 4mm (US 6)
Weight: DK (Double Knit)
Length: 50 g / 137 yards / (125 m)

 

Knit up in the amazing Gemini pattern, which is available free on Ravelry by the incredibly talented and virtually-local  Jane Richmond, this summer top can be worn front to back depending on preference for the focus on the lacework. At $11.95/ball this 4 skein project makes sweater-knitting ever so affordable!

Whether you crochet a summer shawl or knit a comfortable top, Caravan is one of this season’s top yarn choice.
