Berroco Summer Silk is a DK weight blend of cotton and silk that is incredibly soft to the touch. The chainette construction creates light yet lofty garments that are a pleasure to wear year round. Scrumptious!
Summer Silk shines in this lustrous Grenache wrap by Alison Green. Knit with 5 skeins and size 8 needles, the easy-to-memorize lace pattern is a treat to knit. The wrap starts with the center triangle worked in garter stitch, then stitches for lace pattern are picked up along edges of triangle and worked down. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.com.
We're also crushing on this Chatwyn pullover by Alison Green. It begins with the yoke pattern, knit horizontally, and then is worked from the top down for an easy finish.
