Pick your palette and prepare to have creative knitting fun!
Lace linen, held double strand throughout, creating myriad color patterns. Make light to dark gradations, bold stripes both narrow and wide, large color blocks, tweedy areas; they all work. Tie it together with one unifying color for trim.
Body is oversized and swingy; linen gets softer and has more drape with each successive wash and dry.
Sizes M(L). Dress takes takes 6 skeins, tunic takes 5 skeins of Euroflax Lace Weight Linen in assorted colors.
Cool, crisp linen dyes beautifully in Prism's rich, saturated colors. There is nothing like pure linen for keeping cool on hot summer days. Prism's finishing process results in a softer hand than many linen yarns right out of the skein; repeated machine washing will soften it even more.
