Spotlight: Euro Yarns Aruba

“March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.”

This year is living up to that classic quote in spades. Monday it was sunny and 65 F, by Wednesday I was looking out the window at snow flurries.

What does that mean for our knitting and crocheting? Transition garments!

The Aruba 2-Point Poncho by Nancy Nagle fits the bill.

This pattern will be good for an intermediate or advanced beginner knitter.

You can also expect it to work up quickly on US15 needles.

Aruba is a new spring yarn from the Euro Yarns brand. It is available in 10 self striping colors. This tape style yarn has no animal fiber, so it’s great for people who might be allergic to wool.
