HiKoo CoBaSi DK Yarn - In The Navy 81
HiKoo CoBaSi is a uniquely constructed yarn. It is composed of COtton, BAmboo, SIlk, and elastic nylon, which is where the name CoBaSi comes from.
This is a cable plied yarn. Each of the 5 plies that make up the HiKoo CoBaSi are comprised of 3 plies, 2 plies of tightly spun fiber, and 1 ply of loosely spun fiber. This gives this yarn excellent stretch, making it ideal for summer wear and form fitting garments. The yarn is also very round, giving superb stitch definition.
HiKoo CoBaSi DK is an excellent option for those with a wool allergy, a very breathable yarn, the plant fiber content makes it light and easy to care for. HiKoo DK is a popular choice for charity knitting, as it is washable and wool free. It is also an excellent choice for all sorts of baby garments and accessories, with bright fun colors, and the elasticity of the yarn lets the little ones wear their handknits longer! Fingerless mitts are another great project, the stitch definition makes these small pieces have a Wow! factor.
Also available in the CoBaSi line are the CoBaSi, a fingering weight yarn, and the CoBaSi Plus, a heavy DK weight yarn. This makes the CoBaSi line perfect for any projects that need to stretch, and be breathable.
CoBaSi DK is one of the recommended yarns for the "Knitted Knockers" pattern, which is available as a download from skacel here: Knitted Knockers pattern.
But, we couldn't help but fall in love with the cute little girls' Dress/Cardigan, it's a long flaired button up dress when the little one is tiny, and then as they grow it can be worn as a cardigan, making sure that each stitch gets it's day in the sun. This is available as a free download here: Grow Into Me pattern.
