With summer in full swing, i'm thinking about what to make with the beautiful BC Garn Allino we have in stock.
Allino is a blend of linen and cotton, making it cool and robust (the linen adds extra strength). Aside from making excellent dish cloths thanks to the extra scrubby ability from the linen, it is wonderful for a whole range of projects.
First up is a freebie, and a good chance to practice crochet if you're new to the craft or a bit rusty. The Crocheted Project Bag by Jessica Gore
is available to download for free on the Sweater Collective website, and Allino would give nice structure to help the bag stand up.
For the knitters, Jessie Maed's Outline Raglan
will let the drapey linen / cotton combo of Allino shine. Nice and simple knitting, too, for post-holiday brains.
Sari Nordlund's Cephisso
cami is a cool layering piece. While it's designed for two yarns held together, these come to a DK weight so will work for Allino (make sure to check gauge).
A few of you have asked if I'll be getting in Sari's new book - and it is on the list. Pre-orders will available in the coming weeks.
For Southern Hemisphere friends, I hope you are staying cool and enjoying the good weather!
