Knit Today Magazine - - Notebook -

Pret­tify your sum­mer fash­ion with Julie Fer­gu­son’s gor­geous but­ton-up col­lar. It’s worked in Rico Fash­ion Pixel DK – a gor­geous mul­ti­coloured cot­ton-blend yarn that comes in a range of 11 dusky, tonal blends. This means, choose the right shade for your fash­ion style and it should match most of the clothes in your wardrobe, making it su­per use­ful and ver­sa­tile. It’s fin­ished in a very sim­ple, pretty pi­cot cast-off edge. Give it a go to­day! TO MAKE Cast on 100 Knit 2 rows. Work 2 rows in st st.
