Canopy Worsted has been a longtime favorite over here at Kelbourne Woolens. But, it had one little quirk in that it was available in 50 gram / 100 yard skeins, which wasn't a lot of yarn per skein - particularly for a good basic worsted. We love using it for sweaters, and at 100 yards per skein we were tying on a new skein too frequently. Not being ones who relish the task of weaving in all those ends we decided to make a change: Canopy Worsted is now available in 100 gram / 200 yard skeins!
That means a woman's medium sweater will use less than 10 skeins to complete, which is fantastic.
• Yarn: Canopy Worsted: orchid (MC), 7 (8, 9, 10, 12) skeins + obsidian (CC), 1 skein.
• Gauge: 19 sts and 36 rows = 4” in Garter St, 21 sts and 27 rows = 4” in Ribbing Pattern.
• Needles: US 6 (4.25 mm) straights or 1 - 24” circs, or size to obtain gauge.
• Size: To fit 34 (38, 42, 46, 50)” bust.
Many of our favorite designers love Canopy Worsted for sweaters as well!
