Summerlite 4ply, another yarn Rowan has introduced this summer, is a 100% cotton yarn made of the finest cotton and comes in a palette of 12 shades in wonderful summer tonal colours.
I have already worked with this yarn and I must say, it is wonderfully soft. It is as you are knitting with a cashmere yarn, especially the lighter colours. It is producing soft and smooth fabric.
Rowan has asked Martin Storey to do 12 designs to introduce this yarn and he has created a bunch of fresh and crisp designs, which are the right companions for summer days.
A single button closure bedecks this cropped lace stitch cardigan. Long sleeves and a round neck are there for pleasing you.
A faux cable pattern made of lace stitches is shown on this sweater. A boat neck and elbow length sleeves accompanies this design.
This design is knitted in plain stockinette stitch and is featuring a deep neckline and deep ribbed welt and cuffs.
Marguerite is a long cardigan knitted in stockinette stitch with short sleeves, which are showing a lovely lace detail on their edges.

Rowan Summerlite 4ply is such a lovely yarn and I started to knit a sweater in this yarn featuring stripes and structure.
