Summer Edition...What's on my needles
When I picture a Rowan pattern, I think of simple designs that can be worn for years to come. Rowan epitomizes a clean elegance of unique patterns that can strike a chord at any age. Thumbing through Rowan's pattern books, it's easy for me to leave a trail of post-it notes that signal a "please make me" sign.
Currently, I am loving the spring collection of designs in the Softyak DK Collection book. Jumo and Sonam were the ones that caught my eye the most. I decided to give Jumo a try because the top is slightly longer and the lace pattern is very unique. My third favorite pattern is Norbu, a cozy cardigan with a cabled yoke. This cardigan is a classic but the small details really make it standout.
Working with the Softyak Dk has been an absolute dream. The yarn is light and cottony and the yak adds the feel of cashmere. Not only does this blend knit into an amazing soft fabric, but the yak has been sustainably sourced. Yak fibers have antistatic properties but it's also a antimicrobial...so your garment will be germ free!
Overall, between the pattern and the yarn, I'm on yak-cloud heaven!
