Catherine has been knitting with the Adriafil Knitcol yarn. She has knitted this adorable boys tank top for her nephew using only 3 balls of shade 064. As the Knitcol is not a definite double knitting yarn you would need to do a tension square to check your tension is correct. Catherine said that the tank top has come out slightly smaller than the Sirdar Baby Crofter dk pattern suggests for a 4 to 5 year old size, approximately 1½” smaller. This is not a great difference.
It is nice to see how the yarn knits up, it really does suit the garment design.
