Plymouth Vizions Yarn: Our Hottest Yarn for Spring Knitting!

Plymouth Vizions Yarn
with Garden Scarf Free Pattern
Creating a lot of clacking on knitter's needles this spring is Plymouth Vizions Yarn. This runaway hit is pretty, with almost a stained glass appeal. Vizions is a linen/rayon/nylon blend. I thought it would be super stiff, but it's not. It has almost a silky smooth feel and is nice to work with. I'm using it with my Denise Needles and I don't feel like it's too slippery or out of control (sometimes I feel that way with silky yarns). It knits up at a dk weight so it's great for lots of spring knitting projects. We really fell for all the beautiful color palettes in this yarn. Each ball is self striping and the combinations are so interesting; perfect spring tones and a few shades will look great when I have a bit of a summer tan.

I'm working away on a lattice style scarf. Want to knit one, too? Here's the free pattern!
