NEW Spring YARN: Diamond Luxury Caravan

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.

Gauge: 22 sts / 10cm (4″) and 28 rows
Needle: 4mm (US 6)

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.
