Gaia from Berroco

Posted on Apr 22, 2011 in Free Patterns

Just in time for Earth Day, a lovely, free pattern in a yarn made exclusively from recycled materials. Remix, from Berroco, is a blend of Nylon, Cotton, Acrylic, Silk and Linen that is collected from the textile industry, sorted by fiber and color and shredded then it is spun into new yarn. Since the fibers are already dyed the process conserves water as well.

Gaia, a short sleeve, lace-bodiced, cardigan is nearly seamless and uses a top-down, short-row technique to knit the sleeves.
