Adriafil Bon Ton is a thin, delicate, lightweight and incredibly soft yarn…a real pleasure to work with. And it goes such a long way with its 195 mt in a 50 g ball. Made almost entirely of premium cotton (97%), it has just a tiny percentage of polyester to feel a bit softer and pleasant to the touch. The colours are cleverly matched to achieve a contrast tone-on-tone shading effect with a lovely elegant look. The stripy effect is unusual and unexpected, every row is a surprise even worked in stocking stitch and your top will always look unique! Garments made with Bon Ton yarn are refined and elegant.
It is very enjoyable to knit with and we’ve used it to make this delightful baby cardigan (you can find the pattern here) in shade 80 and a cleverly constructed sleeveless top in shade 82. The pattern for the top is Red Fuji – it was stored in my Ravelry library but, sadly, does not seem to be available any more.
80 Sandy Fancy, 82 Sea Fancy, 84 Cedar Fancy
