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.

    All I can say is “God Bless You.” I have been looking for something similar to this for ages and I can’t wait to try it. However, I’m only to my first sleeve rib and will be lucky if I finish the sweater this year. Of course, I’ll have to figure out how to go around the neck and make the neck and front band match but you have given me a good steer in the right direction. Not sure what I’m going to use for bottom or sleeve bands but your suggestions at the bottom of this page for the twisted cable rib stitch looks interesting. You can be sure that if it all works out you’ll have full credits given on my Ravelry page as well as a posting here.

    Hello there!
    Love the videos! So nice to see more button band options. And this one is very nice.
    I have a question…..for row 3 at the end in the instructions it says to purl 2 but in the video you say to knit 2.
    And in the instruction on the video it says to purl 2…….and I believe you actually did knit 2. Just need clarification before I try this one! Thanks
    Amy

    A suble elegant band that will be perfect for a simple design! Is there a “rule of thumb” to use to vary the buttonhole size?

    I really enjoy the excellent video quality and clear audio instructions. The pace is perfect too.
    Thanks for making so much available for free!

      You can just add another stitch to the bound off stitches. Or buy buttons that will fit the holes that were made in the example.
