Breakfast Blend is a delicious, 3-ply pairing of soft, combed merino and alpaca yarn, which knits up into a luxurious, velvety fabric. The alpaca contributes a silky hand while the merino keeps the yarn bouncy and light; the resulting fabric has a warm density and soft halo without weight, perfect for garments, accessories, or blankets.

    Thanks for the tutorials – they are great. I was just wondering how you might substitute the bias bind off in a pattern that instructs you to, for example, bind off xxx number of stitches at each end over, say, five rows. This gives a nicer finish but I wouldn’t know how to substitute it!
