Have you ever knit a project with Ultra® Alpaca Light? This lighter version of the popular Ultra® Alpaca fiber blend can knit to sport and DK weight gauges. Knit at these gauges, the 50 wool/50 alpaca blend makes a warm and supple fabric that is smooth and thinner than its larger gauge counterpart.You can also use it to knit lacy projects that strike a beautiful balance between delicacy and heft. This multitasking yarn is also a wonderful candidate for colorwork, as shown in Winterfloral
1 & Winterfloral 2, our free cowl pattern this week from guest designer Cheryl Burke.
These two cowls are deceptively distinctive—Winterfloral
1 and Winterfloral 2 are the same pattern, knit in two very different color combinations. Surprises abound—the inside of these gorgeous cowls has an attractive colorwork pattern as well.
