Summer is almost here and that means quick knits with light weight yarns. I currently subscribe to the Katia blog which is full of modern fashion from Spain. So the minute I read about their new patterns in Katia washi yarn I knew I had to share it here. I was happy to know this yarn is not only excellent for bags and baskets, but also a great choice for a quick summer top. Katia washi is a tape bulky yarn, made of polyester and viscose with 100 grams / 109 yards per skein and it is machine washable! The yarn is very soft and affordable. You can purchase it here in my Etsy shop. I currently have kits on sale to make cute bags like the following drawstring and tote bag. You also get the printed pattern when you buy the kit. You may also buy single skeins if you prefer to mix up the colors.
If you like to crochet, this cute Crochet bag is super easy and a great summer accessory.
And how about this open white top made with two balls of Katia washi on size US15 and US19 needles.
