Ponchos are promising to be this spring’s hottest accessory and Michelle Hunter’s 14 Carat KAL is the perfect way to make your own.  Starting April 7th, join Michelle and knit along as you watch this gorgeous and interesting design evolve.  Using Skacel’s HiKoo CoBaSi, this garment will have superior drape and simple construction, promising to be flattering on everyone.  The pattern will be available in 2 sizes to allow for a better fit, and will take either 6 or 8 skeins.  Deb will be guiding a class for this KAL at Fiberworks beginning April 8th, full details will be available closer to the date.

CoBaSi is a wonderful fingering weight combination of cotton, bamboo and silk with a slight texture.  The yarn works up lovely, soft to the touch and light to wear, perfect for spring.  Best of all, Fiberworks has nearly all of the colors available with enough skeins to join the KAL, and it’s 20% off until April 7th.  CoBaSi is available in solids, tonals and multi colors, and all of them will showcase this design.  Hurry in and get your favorite color before it’s gone!
