US 7/G (4.5 mm) • 5.25 stitches/inch • 219 yards • DK
50 percent linen/flax, 50 percent cotton
Rowan’s Creative Linen is dry to the hand but creates a lovely fabric with a matte finish that will soften with wear and washing.
US 5-6/N-O (3.75-4 mm) • 5.5-5.75 stitches/inch • 191 yards • DK
50 percent Merino, 25 percent rayon, 25 percent alpaca
A beloved tweedy yarn whose felted texture makes it a favorite of designers and ideal for colorwork, including Fair Isle. Make anything that strikes your fancy, and love the results.
US 3-8/D-H (3.25-5 mm) • 4.5-5.75 stitches/inch • 229 yards • Lace
70 percent mohair, 30 percent silk
Swoon! Good grief: tick away in plain old stockinette or chain stitch, and you’ll make something beautiful without even trying. Use a double strand to create fabric with more substance. Perfect for anything soft and special.
US 6/G (4 mm) • 5.5 stitches/inch • 148 yards • DK
76 percent cotton, 15 percent yak fiber, 9 percent nylon
A little bit of summer luxury from Rowan: the yak fibers lend the cotton the softness of cashmere and temper the brightness of the dyes, lending the resulting fabric a pretty mélange effect.
