I posted about this in the patterns forum! I'm in loooove...too bad the yarn is freaking $26 a skein!!! (or a mere $19 a skein at woolneedlework, the cheapest I found...it's Colinette Giotto)

I've been hunting for a suitable alternative...but it sure is hard to find multicolored variegated ribbon yarn that knits to gauge on US11 needles. :rollseyes:

I looooove it though.....

I like it too, I just got that magazine yesterday and it's the one I like the most. It would look good in a plain color too though, maybe KP has something that would work?? :thinking:

I just loooove the colors in that yarn. :crying: :rollseyes:

I do have one lead -- this yarn would knit to gauge when doubled. I got a ball in the bargain bin at the LYS and I'm going to swatch it and see how it feels. It comes in lots of yummy colors, and I was thinking about maybe doubling one of the multicolors with a coordinating solid color. Substituting a non-ribbon yarn has got to be tricky, though, because I'd still want it to be lightweight...and not many yarns that knit 3 sts/inch on 11s are very lightweight.

I got 10 skeins of Classic EliteFilati D'Italia Isabella for $26 from a WEBS closeout sale a while back (they may still have some). Recommended needle size is 10 and it is a yummy soft verigated cotton. I am SOOOoooo ready for a KAL.
