Itís hard not to fall in love with Berroco Folio. A new trans-seasonal yarn, Folio is a blend of soft, glowing alpaca and just a bit of viscose for strength and shine. What I love most about Folio is its versatility. It can be knitted on a wide range of needles to make a variety of gorgeous fabrics. When Norah and I first began designing booklet #344, we wanted to keep to a theme of simple shapes with an unexpected surprise of color or texture. Some of our stitch patterns were even influenced by patterning on Japanese kimonos. To hear Norah and Andra (our New England sales rep) discuss the designs in detail, watch our audio slideshow.
Three different scales of chevron lace are used to create this delicate shawl.
