I would like to make this gown for my daughter who will be born in september, but I'd like to make it out of something nicer than red heart or bernat. What yarn would you reccomend? http://geocities.com/jaslamb/snflklace.htm
Sky's the limit on budget, no preference on fiber type. I just want something that will drape beautifully when knit. I recently made another little dress from bernat softee baby and it was lovely to work with but it wasn't very flow-y when knit. Stubborn and didn't lay well. I was thinking maybe a soft mercerized cotton for shine or something like microspun (though I'm not a big fan of how odd the stitches look when knitted from this stuff) for the nice drape.
I have used Sirdar yarns and they are great for things like this. Also have you thought of Sublime organic cotton. I have my eye on some for my granddaughter. I have felt it and it is soft and lovely. The colors are amazing also. Ram Wool has it on sale right now today is last day for 30% off.
