Ollagua + Malibu Top + Venice Scarf = Eyes Popping Out of Our Heads!

 Who's ready for a little warm weather knitting? We've got new colors in stock of a favorite DK weight linen yarn: Ollagua! We've paired it with two super-simple patterns, both from designer Grace Akhrem. Ollagua from Araucania Yarns is a vibrant, hand-dyed pure linen yarn. We love linen because it's sturdy...but we really love it because it just gets better with time! Use it! Wash it! It becomes softer and softer the more you do!

The Malibu Top is constructed with two rectangles; the front and back are exactly the same, each consisting of easy-peasy stockinette with a simple eyelet edging on both sides. Once you complete the two pieces, you'll seam up the sides just inside the lacey edge creating a lovely flutter effect! XSmall (33") and Small (37") requires two skeins, Medium (41"), Large (45"), XLarge (49") & XXLarge (53") all require three skeins. 

The Venice scarf measures 6 3/4" x 87" --  you'll need just ONE skein of 
Ollagua; there's only ONE pattern row that you'll need to remember! That, friends, is the perfect stress-free pattern!


Both patterns are available on Ravelry!
