New Free Pattern! Alice

alicecloselarge We were incredibly excited when one of the first large projects we worked on as the new distributors was the product development for the Lightweight Road to China.  It is a soft and luxurious lighter weight cousin to the original Road to China with beautiful drape and a slight sheen.  At 159 yards/50 grams per skein with a versatile gauge range anywhere from 20 sts/4" for an airy, drapey fabric to 24 sts/4" for colorwork or other more structured fabric, it has quickly become a favorite staple for many of our shops.

The first pattern we are offering, Alice,  is a wonderful accessory using a ruched technique with many options for customization.  There are three sizes offered -- a smaller version for a closer more "traditional" cowl fit, a wider, longer version for a slouchier look (shown on the model) and a longer scarf-sized version for a more dramatic effect.

Because you cast on the way you would for a traditional rectangular scarf, you can really customized the ruching to fit your desired end result -- longer, shorter, even, random...the possibilities are endless!
