With the sun finally making an appearance, it's all about summery lace projects.
I'm a big fan of Classic Elite patterns, they're timeless and contemporary. We have a fabulous selection of their Silky Alpaca Lace and just introduced the new handpaint colors. A free pattern from Classic Elite's web letter, the Silky Alpaca Lace Scarf, by Tonia Barry is a simple openwork lace scarf knit with just one skein of Silky Alpaca Lace, shown here in color Tropical Fruit.
The finished measurements are 10.5" wide and 52" long.
Silky Alpaca Lace is the perfect spring/summer yarn with 70% alpaca/30% silk.
Each 50 gram ball has 440 yards and gives a gauge from 17-32 stitches per inch on a US 2-9 knitting needle.
Solid colors are $9.95 each, handpaints are $11.95.
From top to bottom: Desert Flowers, Tropical Fruit, Cosmos and Turquoise Shadow.
Top to bottom: Midnight Forest, Antique Kaleidoscope, Sunlit Grotto and Wheatfield.
Shown here: Sunlight Grotto. The colors really pop with the 30% silk!
