This kit includes yarn, the pattern with instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking.

StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"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.
When it comes to a light and airy tunic or summer dress with just a touch of sexy, Michelle could become your favorite. It was designed for Solo Lino, the recycled linen eco-yarn. The pleasantly simple pattern is worked from the top down in one piece with no seams to be sewn. And as you progress the needle size increases 3 times to create the A-line profile and a skirt that has a little swish when you walk. The design is simple, knitting it is simple and the result is simply charming.
Lana Grossa’s Solo Lino, Sport, 80% recycled linen, 20% linen, Eco-yarn
This yarn is almost unbelievable. There is none of the stiffness that can be experienced when knitting with virgin linen yarn. Instead, the recycled process results in a beautiful drape that feels soft in your hands. Yet it retains all the qualities that make linen so desirable.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
