Susan Barstein has always liked cotton tape yarns, and Berroco Karma is no exception. “I fell in love,” Susan says. She immediately knew she wanted to use it to knit a fun, open garment to display at the LYS where she works, In The Making.
Spring Breeze is a beautiful knitted vest pattern featuring rows of dropped-stitch detail. It’s knit flat as
rectangles and then seamed to create a lightweight vest that’s perfect for spring.
How long have you been knitting/crocheting?
My Mom taught me to knit when I was a small child. I’ve been knitting for over 40 years! I started crocheting in high school.
What’s your favorite project you’ve ever made?
The barn raising blanket! I loved sharing yarn with friends.
Any knitting disaster stories?
You should ask my kids. They are always teasing me about all of the crazy places I knit. One disaster was getting my needles confiscated in a foreign airport!
If you could knit something for anyone in the world it would be?
Kate Middleton. She has such a classic sense of style. I would be honored for her to wear any of my designs.
What’s your favorite thing about knitting?
It is so calming and relaxing! I love sharing, and knitting for others, too.
Do you have a cool design you want to share? Or did you recently finish a project with Berroco yarn? You can email Ashley: email@example.com or post it to the Berroco Lovers forum in Ravelry.
