This pattern is not sold individually, but is part of Niños: A Collection of Kids' Knitwear & Designs by Malabrigo (Book 9). At Yarn Loop, we think that every Knitting book should come with yarn, and Malabrigo has some of the best available.
Flurries is built upon Rios, a superwash merino wool in worsted weight. It has a heavy twist so that the Merino wool resists pilling. For this reason, Rios is one of the best wool yarns for sweaters and tunics. Easy care, super soft, and the most stunning pattern...can you ask for more?
Every little girl from 6-12 years old will feel like a Sugar Plum Fairy in the Flurries tunic. Two Color Fair-Isle with simple top-down construction and no need for seaming! This pattern will entertain the fast knitter because the pattern is always changing, and challenge the knitter who is trying to become better at their craft. And with the 2 Handed Technique shown in this video, it knits up in a hurry.
Gift Set includes Niños: Malabrigo Book 9 (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For Ball Winding services click here.
