New Sirdar Divine




Sirdar Divine is a colourful brushed yarn which has a glittery thread through it.  The wool comes out in a stripey effect in varying thicknesses.   

I knitted the wrist warmers from Sirdar Booklet 466 in shade Francesca 62 using just one ball and 4mm needles.  It’s certainly a quick and easy project for a first time knitter.  There’s also no need for a row counter, as each row depends on the thickness of the wool.  As a complete addict to my row counter, I found this a little challenging but both wrist warmers have come out to the same length!   

 

I have to say that the wool looks much nicer knitted up than it does on the ball and is very effective.  I think Sirdar Divine will be a hit with young and old alike and there is an assortment of cardigans and jumpers in the Booklet for women and girls from 4 years to adult.
