Halcyon’s Signature Block Island Blend is featured in the latest Kniters Magazine (summer 2014). With its unique breathable blend of gentle slub cotton, linen/hemp and rayon, Block Island Blend is a favorite among knitters and weavers alike. “Shirttails” is a super cute cami top. Two different colored strands of yarn are worked as one to create an enticing marled fabric with subtle texture. The lace edge shirttail hem and bodice, slight A-line silhouette and I-cord straps make this the perfect summer top.
The pattern, featuring Block Island Blend Yarn colors Block Island Blend color 1260 (8226dyedonBleach) and Block Island Blend color 1240 (8028) calls for 400-600 yds of each color for a 32″-48″ top and US size 6 needles.
If you like the marled look of Block Island Blend used doubled you’ll definitely want to take a look at one of our most popular patterns, Very Versatile Neck Down Hoodie / hooded pullover by Knitting Pure and Simple.
