Introducing Dandoh Silk+

Got cast-on-itis for a summery tee or shawl?

Us, too! Luckily, we've also got the cure: DanDoh Silk +.

With a pleasing sport-weight gauge, Silk + is soft, light, and comfortable to knit or crochet. Its unique combination of raw silk and soft cotton gives it delightful tweed-like nubs, as well as marvelous drape so it wears like a dream.

Pattern Ideas

Yumiko Alexander is the artist behind DanDoh's yarns AND patterns. An incredibly talented designer (not to mention model!), she is influenced by her Japanese heritage as she creates garments with simple shapes, lots of texture, and unique stitch patterns. Yumiko is inspired by imagining pieces she'd like in her own closet that you can't find in any standard store. Images below link to just a few of her many patterns on Ravelry.
