Summer cardi of many colours
Waterfall Jackets by Sirdar Spinning Ltd.
Needles & yarn
US 7 - 4.5 mm
Sirdar Summer Stripes
10 skeins = 1720.0 yards (1572.8 meters), 500 grams

I love the mix of fibres in the yarn, the same as Calico. Light, with just a touch of warmth.
The Summer Stripes are much much nicer knitted up than in the ball.
NOTE: there is nothing to finish the back neck, which I think will stretch with the weight of the waterfall fronts through time. So I made an I-cord (my fist - so easy!) and sewed in along the back neck tucking it in at the shoulder seams. Looks good and will protect the neck.
