As a rather nice thank you for joining the Rowan Subscription Club (a recent birthday present!) I received a gift of Kidsilk Creation in the colour Smoke. Super I thought, as well as having the Rowan Knitting & Crochet magazine delivered direct to my door before it hits the stores, I get to try out a new type of yarn! Kidsilk Creation comes with a free pattern to make either a knitted or crochet scarf from a 50g hank of yarn. You just need a pair of 5mm (no.6) (US 8) needles or an 8mm (no 0) crochet hook. The pattern is very quick and easy and produces a fun scarf with a lovely effect in less than an hour. You can go to knitrowan.com to see images and the downloadable pattern of the scarf, and also knitting and crochet videos to help you make the project.
Kidsilk Creation is a limited edition yarn with a net, tubular construction made from Kidsilk Haze which is 70% super kid silk Mohair and 30% silk. The yarn comes in some beautiful colours selected from the favourite shades of Kidsilk Haze: cream, dewberry, trance (a beautiful blue), candy girl (pink), jelly (lime green) and smoke. Kidsilk Creation Stripe is also available in a range of scrummy shades to give a gorgeous stripe effect.
I decided to knit my scarf. Its super easy and fun to make. I think it would make a great gift for family or a friend:
Have fun with whatever you are knitting, crocheting or making this weekend!
