Miradores is a new DK weight yarn by Plymouth Yarn. It is a lovely blend of baby alpaca, merino and silk. The sheen of the silk ply gives this yarn a bit of elegance, and the yarn knits up very evenly even with the bit of texture the silk wrap in the yarn provides. This yarn is super soft, and its drape would also be a great choice for a wrap or shawl.

We wanted a classic cropped cardigan that had just a little bit of interest to make the knitting fun. We chose to knit the Rosa cardigan. Both the pattern style and yarn makes this cardigan a year-round option. We found the pattern outstanding in terms of clarity and specifics, such as how to place and make the buttonholes. The sleeves can be knit full length instead of 3/4 as in our model. Of course it can be lengthened too!

The Ester Sweater is a super cute crocheted top for children sizes 6 months to 10 years. It is available on Ravelry for $4.99.

A customer showed us this pattern because she crocheted a number of them, and we fell in love with it! Her preferred yarn for this project is Vintage DK. However, we wanted a sample for one of our newer yarns, Line -- a DK weight linen/cotton blend. We love the look and it's always nice to have different fiber choices. Line (pronounced Leena) is nicely priced too. We've machine washed this yarn and it holds up nicely. That said, it would be perfect for an adult top too, whether casual or fancy.
