What a wonderful yarn, just perfect for summer and year round wear! Casino is a cotton/synthetic blend, embellished with the tiniest metallic thread that gives a subtle shimmer to the yarn. It has lots of body too, great for openwork, with cotton softness.
There are beautiful patterns for Casino in the new Fatto a Mano 197 and 198: everything from lacy pullovers to cardigans and tops. Knit a simple top to wear on its own all summer, then under a jacket for work the rest of the year!
50g is about 180 yards (165m). 25 st & 32 rows = 4" on US 5-6 (3.5-4 mm) needles
