HiKoo CoBaSi

HiKoo Cobasi is a completely WOOL-FREE sock yarn made from a cotton, bamboo and silk blend that also has a generous amount of elastic nylon to give them the stretch socks need. Soft and machine washable, it’s also great for baby projects and chemo caps. 2 skeins are enough for a pair of socks, 1 skein for ankle socks, a baby hat, or baby booties.

Cobasi is also available in Tonal and Multi colours.

New Sublime Baby Patterns Books

Sublime has delivered another in their line of astonishingly cute (if cuteness can astonish) baby patterns in their new yarn, Baby Silk & Bamboo DK.  The book contains Sublime’s usuall selection of beautiful, stylish, and wearable baby clothes for both boys and girls. Patterns include sweaters (pullovers and cardigans), a coat, hats, booties, a blanket, a vest, and a very cute romper. Book $20.

The yarn, Baby Silk & Bamboo DK, has a very soft and silky composition of 80% bamboo and 20% silk.  It is machine washable, but I always use the delicate cycle just to be safe.  It knits up a standard 22 sts & 28 rows on 4mm needles, 50g/95m. Yarn $9 ea.


Pictures aren’t available yet for this little book, but it’s full of vintage inspired sweaters for boys and girls. It is heavy on texture, lots of beautiful arans, a couple simple fair isles, and some simpler cardies for girls. They yarn used is a DK weight, so Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK or Cascade 220 Superwash Sport would both work.
