Our friends at Rowan have generously provided a set of all 12 shades of Creative Linen.
This is a brilliant yarn—50% linen and 50% cotton—that combines the crispness of linen and the softness of cotton. The many-plied construction makes it semi-fluffy, which is unusual for these fibers. The DK weight is superb for a log cabin blanket. To spur you to greatness, we’ll include a copy of our MDK Field Guide No. 4: Log Cabin, in which we explain everything you need to know to get the hang of log cabin knitting.
Fair warning: log cabin knitting is a never-ending thing. Once you try it, we think you’ll love it. If you’re wanting instant gratification, scroll down for links to MDK Field Guide No. 4: Log Cabin and Rowan Handknit Cotton, one of our favorites.
