Knitscene’s Summer 2012 preview went up this week! Did you see:

Sizes 32¼ (34½, 36¾, 39, 41, 43¼ )” bust circumference; shown in size 34½”

Yarn Classic Elite Yarns Firefly (75% viscose, 25% linen; 155 yd 142 m/50 g):
#7789 pink petunia, 4 (4, 5, 5, 5, 6) skeins

Gauge 22 sts and 32 rnds = 4” in St st on larger needle

Tools  Size 5 (3.75 mm): 24” circular (cir) needle, size 4 (3.5 mm): 16” cir needle for edging

Markers (m), stitch holders, yarn needle

A simple women’s tank with a bias knit panel in the front. Worked in the round to the armholes.

Classic Elite Firefly is a beautiful yarn  with stunning color palette (2 pages worth!). I have used it a couple times already, and I recommend it highly. Firefly is a sophisticated, dressy yarn and surprisingly supple to knit with. However if shiny yarn isn’t your look, think crisp summery yarns: linen, hemp and cotton yarns with lots of drape for alternatives.
