While bobbing around the shop, helping people match yarns and patterns, I re-discovered an old favorite: Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino. It’s so soft and sumptuous. A single ply yarn in a charming mix of merino and alpaca, perfect for both large and small projects alike.
In looking for a new project to match this wonderful yarn I came across the Banstead pullover. This simple, yet lovely, pullover is knit in the Suri Merino and sizes range from 42″-66″ classifying it as a ‘big girl knit’. I love the shaping that makes this sweater great. Urban Yarns is giving the whole magazine the pattern comes in (Interweave Knits Summer 2011) free with the purchase of yarn.
