Araucania's Alumco Hand Painted is a fun, shimmery worsted weight yarn that creates garments and accessories with fabulous drape. The viscose strands add that hint of glimmer to make your finished piece just a little more special. Perfect for summer ponchos and pullovers!
We love the easy openwork detailing that adds a cooling finishing touch to the Hermosa Tee by Grace Akhrem. The tee is knit flat and works up quickly using size 9 circular needles. You'll need 3 (3, 4, 4, 5, 5) skeins for finished bust sizes 32-1/2 (36-1/2, 40-1/2, 44-1/2, 48-1/2, 52-1/2)". Add a note to your order for us to include the free pattern.
And then there's this great little shrug from Jo Allport that can slip easily over the shoulders to add a sparkling finishing touch on everything from beachwear to evening attire. You'll need 3 (3, 3, 4, 4, 4) skeins and size 6 & 7 needles for sizes XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL). The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.com.
