We love linen for warm-weather projects—the crisp, cool hand of linen makes for projects that are comfortable to wear, no matter the temperature. Berroco Linen Stonewash™ is a 100% linen DK-weight yarn worked in a chainette construction and dyed with a unique process that lends the stonewashed effect. The resulting fabric is lightweight, full of drape, and ideal for lace and texture. The six projects in Booklet #405 Berroco Linen Stonewash showcase the yarn's versatility for both knitting and crochet.
Berroco Linen Stonewash is great for texture as shown in Virgilia, this week's free pattern. A slipped-stitch rib pattern forms the body and sleeves of this knitted tunic, topped with a garter stitch yoke. The pieces are knit flat and seamed.
You can also download the free Mallow pattern, recently revised to be shown in Berroco Linen Stonewash and with two larger sizes! Our Marsh + Mallow Knit-along starts tomorrow, but you can join in any time after May 1.
