I really love Daicey. I love it’s simplicity, I love it’s easy elegance, and I especailly love that it knits up fast and in one piece! I also feel like it’s a good project for someone who has never worked with linen. The yarn, Quince & Co Kestrel, is easy to work with, washes beautifully.
Linen is very stretchy, especially when knitted at a loose tension – consider going down a size.
Wash in the machine in a delicates bag. Machine dry in delicates bag until damp and lay flat to finish drying. (To be honest, I put it in for the whole cycle, the most important part is the delicates bag – you don’t want your hand knits accidentally abrading with garments in the wash)
