After months of gray skies and bare branches, it's usually about this time of year when I start dreaming of warm sandy beaches and palm trees. Even if a getaway trip isn't possible, you can enjoy a mini vacation when working with Berroco Lago™, our bright new machine-washable linen blend. Dyed in a wide range of bold, eye-catching tropical shades, this soft thick-and-thin yarn offers beautiful drape and intriguing texture. If you're starting to feel like me, a new spring project in Lago might be the perfect antidote for cabin fever.
When designing Booklet #317 Berroco Lago, Norah and I took full advantage of the yarn's saturated colors and gorgeous texture. The result is a collection of breezy silhouettes that feature interesting stitch patterns and flattering draping. To hear us talk about the designs and see additional photos of each item, watch our audio slideshow.
Flirtatious panels of easy lace add an interesting textural touch to a basic stockinette tank.
