Rico Creative Summer Sprinkles

Last summer we received our first delivery of Rico Creative Summer Sprinkles and I cast on the little summer cardigan from Rico Pattern 1259.

Which turned out to be a huge hit in the shop and we struggled to keep the yarn on the shelf as you all wanted to knit one. But that doesn't help our online customers as you haven't had the chance to see the yarn in person.

The first thing you need to know is the Rico Creative Summer Sprinkles is a 50% cotton & 50% acrylic yarn this means unlike pure cotton it holds it's shape. The yarn is nice to knit with even if it is a bit on the thin side for DK. The yardage is amazing there is 320 m on a ball which means you can knit the cardigan with 3 to 4 balls for the larger size. 

It's also available in a range of muted colours and bright colours. I have seen some of the bright colours knit up and they are literally wow.

We now have twelve different colours in stock and I'm looking forward to it warming up enough to wear the cardigan again this summer.
