Opium From King Cole - We Knitted A Sample!

Knitwits Yarns

The long-awaited "Opium" from King Cole was a little delayed in getting down to us in Penzance but we wasted no time in knitting up a sample garment once it was here.  We think this tie-front cardigan (available in both long and short sleeved versions) is the "must have" for this summer - easy to slip over a t-shirt when the evenings get a little cooler and flattering for every body shape. 

Here is mine:

I knitted the smallest size and it took just 2 balls - that's just £9.98 for the yarn - and that, my friends, is unbelievably good value in anyone's book.

The only thing I would add is that it's very, very difficult to sew your garment up with the yarn itself due to the way it goes from thick to thin.  I used a DMC embroidery thread to sew mine up and it worked an absolute treat.  We stock the full DMC range so do please give us a ring (01736) 367069 if you want a matching thread added to your order.

Fingers crossed the warm weather is here to stay for a while and this will become a summer staple.
