Three Summer Projects in Soft Linen - And the yarn is 20% Off!

Geneva Shawlette
What if you could combine the drape of linen with the softness of alpaca?  It would be Classic Elite Yarn's Soft Linen yarn!  Soft Linen is a blend of 35% linen, 35% wool and 30% baby alpaca, and that adds up to 100% awesome!

Bonus:  Classic Elite Yarn's Soft Linen is on sale at 20% off until June 30th!

When you get a gorgeous alpaca-wool-linen blend like Classic Elite's Soft Linen there's a large selection of available patterns - you may feel a little overwhelmed with your knitting options.  So I'll let you in on three of my favorite designs for Soft LinenYou can choose either the Geneva Shawlette or the Zig Zag Lace Cardigan FREE with the purchase Soft Linen yarn, and the Stripie Scarf is free anytime.
Zig Zag Lace Cardigan
Geneva Shawlette
The Geneva Shawlette adds slashes of color in short rows to create a dramatic graphic effect in a simple and light-weight garter-stitch shoulder wrap.  It was originally published by Classic Elite in the 1401 Oceanside pamphlet.

Zig Zag Lace Cardigan
This time of year, sometimes you need a little something, but you don't want a sweater.  The lacey zig zag panels of the Zig Zag Lace Cardigan offer air movement through the fabric, making this an ideal design for officewear or moving from warm to cool environments and vice versa.  The lacy cardigan is classically beautiful and will quickly become your grab-and-go favorite.

Psst!  Does it look familiar?  You may have seen this pattern before.  It's been one of my most popular designs, and in this new version I've updated the styling and added one smaller size and two larger sizes.

Stripie Scarf
The Stripie Scarf
The Stripie Scarf is a striking modern neckwrap made up of two striped wedges. Knit the first wedge and then add the second, joining the two as you go. Finish with a short section of single crochet, and hit the streets. Pair with a simple white button-down blouse and jeans or use it as a splash of color in any outfit.  You'll need two balls each of two colors of Soft Linen - and with 25 colors to choose from your possibilities are endless! 

The Stripie Scarf PDF is totally free.  Yup, totally free, no obligations at all.  Go ahead and get it now!
