If you’re as excited about the Summer of Basics as we are, but (like me) have changed your mind more than once about which garment to make, below are some options from Kelbourne Woolens featuring The Fibre Co. yarns that would make great basics in any wardrobe!

    I love Seascale! I have been looking for a great gansey to knit. I already have my 3 basics picked out but I will still be adding this to my Ravelry queue. Thanks!
