Classic Silk

Classic Silk has arrived in time for summer.  This warm-weather silk/cotton combination has a great nubby look with a little sheen and a great natural silk feel. Classic Silk comes a wonderful variety of colors that look great together and alone.  It's a blend of 50% cotton, 30% silk, 20% nylon and knits up at 5 sts/inch on US 6 needles with 135 yards/ 50 gram ball.

 The new 2012 pattern booklet for Classic Silk, Riverside is filled with five lightweight designs including Canoe, pictured on the front cover, a simple granny square crochet top.

The Classic Silk Open Cardigan has been one of my favorites for a while.  It's a basic cardigan with a little lace detail along the front band.   Featured in the Classic Elite booklet New Harbor #9098.

From top to bottom: Butter, Oatmeal and Natural.

Moss, Blue Yonder and Cornflower.  

Foxglove, Plum and Coneflower.
