Wow! July already and with all that glorious, hot summer weather, but before you know it a chill will settle into our evenings and the leaves will begin to change color as Autumn approaches. Once it does you’re going to wish you had a fantastic cardigan to ward of that cool weather. Fiona’s newest pattern as our Designer in Residence, Collar Your Dreams, may just be that perfect cardigan!

The Collar Your Dreams cardigan is the experienced, or adventurous, cable knitters dream, intricate and fun with just enough challenge! The cables, that incorporate eyelet holes alongside the crosses, were inspired by iron work and form shapes reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower. This multi-season cardigan sports a shawl collar worked in short rows and elegant, feature waist shaping.

Summer is the perfect time for knitting and crocheting smaller projects such as baby and kids garments and accessories. Nobody wants a big afghan or sweater sitting on their lap when it’s hot and sticky outside.

Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK is a great yarn for baby and kids projects since it’s soft, machine washable, and comes in 22 fun colors. And at $5.49/50g ball, it’s a great price for a 100% extrafine merino superwash yarn.

In this issue of Valley Yarns on Ravelry, I’m sharing some cute projects knit and crocheted in Valley Superwash DK – hats, sweaters, an elephant and even a stylin’ chevron stripe dress.
