Although I loved my first version of Roberts made with Shibui Reed, I knew this new sample would also be a quick favorite. I used my new KittyBea, by the Sea Caspersen, an organic cotton and linen blend yarn. This hand-dyed yarn has a soft and even feel, with some structure. The finished garment is truly something special. It keeps intact both the flattering silhouette and lines of the design, with a beautiful drape.
