Feature Pattern of the Week - Rubia

Rubia Cardigan & Calla Tank,
New Shibui Koan, colors White & Paloma

An easy, breezy summer knit is just the thing to brighten any day. Shibui’s just launched Spring/Summer 2020 collection has a gorgeous collection of simple, wearable knits featuring their new linen/silk blend Koan.

Koan is a spectacular warmer weather yarn blending the striking sheen of mulberry silk with the strength & wearability of linen. Koan has a smooth, gentle ply that creates a light & delicate fabric. Ideal for garments & accessories where a fluid drape is desired.

The Rubia cardigan is a piece you will wear all season. The generous wrap cardigan is knit flat from the bottom up with one strand of Koan, featuring a modified dropped shoulder with set-in ¾ length sleeves.

Rubia requires size US 5, 32” or longer circular needle, US 6 needle for 3-needle bind-off.
