I often get teased about how many white sweaters I knit! I love white for summer and happy with this new chunky lace pullover, perfect for chilly summer evenings. Chunky and lace, two words that in knitting don't seem to often go together! But you can see from the photos that they do marry very well in this fancy over-sized sweatshirt. Pattern is Eos is by Marie Wallin from Rowan's All Seasons Chunky Collection and the yarn is Rowan's All Seasons Chunky in Foam, one of the prettiest whites available in knitting yarn. I am very familiar with white! I have reviewed the yarn before:
All Seasons Chunky is a new spring offering for Rowan. Similar to All Seasons Cotton in every way except the weight, Rowan has taken their popular aran weight and beefed it up to bulky weight. Knitted up it gave the same soft and bouncy hand and excellent stitch definition. Even though it knits up at 10 stitches per 4 inches, the fabric still feels lightweight and creates a "lighter" bulky knit than other bulkys. I'm thinking this will allow the garment not to sag as can sometimes happen with other bulky knits. Being bulky, it just zips along, done in no time.
A few particulars: No problems with splitting or slipping. Chunky is multi plied and tightly twisted into an even round thick shape and is 60% cotton/40% acrylic. It has bounce when knitting and makes fine, even, matte stockinette stitches. Very, very soft, certainly soft enough for baby. Chunky would make a great easy care baby blanket. Minimal pilling. Machine wash.
