These days we have been busy around the office getting all of the new yarns for Fall up on our website, and one that has us all talking is a new yarn from King Cole called Drifter DK. We simply love it!

Bright colours, self-striping, soft to the touch, fantastic yardage and at a great price! What more could you ask for?

Drifter knits at 22 stitches over 4″, on a 4mm needle, which works perfectly for so many baby, children and adult patterns available through King Cole– and elsewhere! Double knitting is such a popular gauge, that we are confident you will have no problems finding yourself a pattern to knit out of this yarn.

With 300 meters per ball, two balls would knit a baby sweater, three to four a toddler sweater, and five and up an adult sweater! And yes… we firmly believe that this yarn is appropriate for ALL ages! Heck… knit a Drifter sweater for everyone in your family!

K107 ModelAnd of course, in true King Cole fashion, they will be offering a fabulous collection of leaflets, specific to this yarn. We will be sure to post them on our website as they come available!

Be sure to call your local yarn shop to see if they have this on order! Drifter will be ready to ship mid-July.

Happy knitting everyone!
