Kidsilk Haze Stripe from Rowan February 14, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas

In the late Fall we received a good sized shipment of one of Rowan’s newest yarns – Kidsilk Haze Stripe – but it didn’t last long! On Friday we received new stock in every colour so I thought I’d share some great pattern ideas for this self striping version of Rowan’s best-selling Kidsilk Haze (70% super kid silk Mohair / 30% silk). The colour combinations have been cleverly put together by the master of colour Kaffe Fassett and are incredibly beautiful when knit up – particularly in projects which feature lots of stockinette. One ball of 50g is enough to knit a scarf and can also be used for any Kidsilk Haze pattern.

Here are a few free patterns specifically for this yarn from Rowan – the directions for the scarf are actually printed on the inside of the ball-band while the poncho/wrap, called Megan, can be downloaded from the Rowan website for free when your register as a member.

The following are a selection of patterns featured in the Kidsilk Haze Stripe Collection which should be arriving in store shortly.

Finally, the patterns below are available for free on the Ravelry website.  The first is called Cloud Cowl and the second is the Alva Shawl.

If you’re thinking of taking on any of these exquisite projects, be sure to read Mona’s recent post on knitting with mohair.
