Firefly Fibers May & June Knitalong
Misti Alpaca’s Pima Silk
(83% Pima Cotton/17% Silk) is newat
Firefly Fibers and we’ve found the perfect project for this special yarn -
The intentional dropping of stitches - yes, dropping stitches on purpose - provides a beautiful textural element and the Pima Silk is perfect for the warmer weather and has amazing drape in this design.
Our Knitalong project uses a lighter weight yarn than Kate Gilbert’s original Clapotis on knitty.com, so we made a few minor adjustments. When you purchase yarn and sign up for the Knitalong, we’ll give you everything you need from our notes for a successful project - including adjusted needle size, gauge and even a couple tips!
