Easy breezy! Dayleza is a simple ruana that can slip over almost any outfit for a little warmth and style. And it is easy to knit--garter stitch rectangles and no seams! The finished piece measures 30" wide and 28" long. It can be hand washed and dried flat. Berroco rates this design as easy.
At a glance, you might mistake Aero for a brushed mohair. It has that same fluffy volume and warmth but its main component is alpaca, which is mixed with nylon and wool. It has been dyed in a long color repeat, so the knitted fabric has wide bands of color that blend from one color into another. Light and lofty, Aero is a bulky weight yarn and is knit in this project at 3 stitches per inch in garter stitch.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- straight or circular needles in US size 13 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)If you adjusted the needle size to get gauge, adjust the needle sizes below accordingly
- spare needle in US size 13
- 1 stitch marker
- tapestry needle
