Cotton and Linen combine for a summery yarn in a popular worsted weight. The linen fiber has a subtle sheen and adds body; cotton adds stitch definition and softness. This yarn gets even softer the more it’s worn and the light and vibrant palette is perfect for warm weather wear.

Worn as a capelet or a cowl, this quick knit is worked from the bottom up in stockinette stitch. The smaller needles are used for a few rounds at the edges with a larger needle making the loose and lacy fabric.
