"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.
Caribe is a tribute to the Virgin Island Oceanographic Park created to protect the waters, sea life and reefs that surround the island of Saint John. The scarf or wrap pattern is worked in the rather amazing shadow knitting technique, which is simple knit and purl stitches in 2 colors. When viewed directly, you see only stripes but from an angle a school of fish magically appear. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
HiKoo’s CoBaSi+, Light Worsted, 55% Cotton, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk, 21% Elastic Nylon
In this amazing blend of fibers, the cotton and bamboo are the basis for a washable yarn, silk adds strength, and elastic nylon helps the finished garment hold its shape. The result is soft and gentle with a wool-like stretch.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
