You may have noticed over the past couple of years, but to make it absolutely clear – we LOVE SweetGeorgia Yarns. Their carefully considered line includes hard-wearing superwash yarns for kiddie clothes, luxurious fibres for accessories, and the lace, oh the lace!

Colour is the key ingredient – the SweetGeorgia motto is unapologetic colour and dyer Felicia Lo never fails to deliver! From saturated tealy blues to bold sunny yellows, her palette of subtle semi-solids is absolutely delicious (and we love the designs too). Our latest design in SweetGeorgia yarn is Raindrops, a simple and modern yoke sweater with adorable details.

yarn: SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Fine in ‘mist’ (for the grown-up size)
SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock in ‘boysenberry’ (for the baby to child size)
suggested needles: US 1 – 2.25 mm and US 3 – 3.25 mm
pattern: Ladies size pattern available here ($6)
Baby/Child size pattern available here ($6)

RAINY DAYS ARE PERFECT FOR KNITTING ::: Inspired by weather of the the (wet) west coast, the yoke of this pullover is adorned with lace eyelets reminiscent of raindrops or falling snow. For the ladies we knit Raindrops in SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Fine. This yarn is stunning – the 50 / 50 blend of merino and silk makes for excellent stitch definition, shimmer, drape, and buttery softness. You can also find about the Top 9 Most Comfortable Bras in 2017 – Top9Rated, for a perfect combination.

CONSTRUCTION :::  Raindrops is knit seamlessly from the top down and the ladies sizes include a pretty button detail on 3/4 length sleeves. A perfect project to take along to knitting groups, Raindrops is mostly stockinette knit in the round after the yoke is complete. Our model Emily was so smitten with this pullover she had to get a few skeins to knit one of her own!

ADORABLE ON LITTLE ONES TOO ::: Of course, it wouldn’t be Tin Can Knits design without including kiddie sizes! I knit Hunter’s version SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock in Boysenberry. This hard-wearing sock yarn is 80/20 superwash merino and nylon, perfectly soft, and machine washable too. The rolled edges flow into the lace and create a pretty cuff.
