Two Summer Sweaters

We have 2 beautiful samples of summer sweaters in the shop.  The first one is “Daily Catch” in Classic Elite Solstice.  This 70% organic cotton and 30% merino wool makes a very soft and breathable fabric and has excellent stitch definitions for showing off the lace work.  The pattern is from Classic Elite’s “Rocky Coast” booklet, which has 3 other designs for the Solstice yarn.

The second sweater is “Caloosa” in Berroco Lago (81% viscose, 19% linen).  We have both brilliant colors and more subdued earthly colors in stock.  The pattern is from Berroco Lago booklet #317.  This sweater shows off the drape of this blend very well.
