Originally published in Mosaic & Lace Knits, this pattern will be made available as a stand-alone single pattern in time for the kick-off of our KAL on September 21st through Barbara's Ravelry store here. https://www.ravelry.com/designers/barbara-benson Of course if you have the book you already have the pattern and now all you need is the yarn.
To get our knitters jumpstarted into the KAL Barbara will be hosting a Zoom based event on Tuesday September 21st from 5 - 6 pm (EST). If you want to participate in this Zoom you will need to sign up for it separately.
The Rowan kits include 4 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed, 2 each of 2 colors.
Ask any Rowan fan for their favourite yarn and there's a good chance it'll be Felted Tweed. Spun in a light DK weight, with a beautiful tweed effect. The magical combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca makes it supremely blockable and a gorgeous option for lacework as a result. Or knit it in garter stitch for a drapey, squishable fabric that is cosy, but light and easy to wear.
The Nest Sport kits include 2 skeins, one of each color. Nest is a light and fluffy 3-ply worsted weight yarn and is milled a wonderful family owned and operated mill about an hour from our studio.100% Non-Superwash Corriedale Wool210 yards/100 grams. This yarn is Hand-wash only.
The Rowan Alpaca is their Island Blend Fine base.
A super-soft sister yarn to Island Blend, makes a perfect choice for accessories and lightweight garments. A blend of Falkland Island Merino wool, baby alpaca and a touch of silk, spun into a neat two-ply yarn with a gentle sheen and rich depth of colour.
There are also several Alpaca Heather Kits available from Manos Del Uruguay.
we'd love to have you join us!
