Free Pattern Friday: Filia

July 15, 2016

You are going to love this!  Filia, by Amy Christoffers, is a simple yet stunning tank that you will wear all summer long!   

Filia is an A-lined shaped tank with a wide hem.  Check out the beautiful drape!

Filia is made using Mykonos, a yarn that has quickly become a staff and store favorite since it was introduced this past spring. You'll love the deep, rich, jewel-tone color choices!

Amy Christoffers from the Berroco Design Team has provided a few tips for weaving in the ends of Mykonos.  

"With any non-felting yarn (plant fibers, rayon, viscose, as well as superwash wool and silk) the best thing is to try to join new balls at the seam edge of a garment when ever possible. This will allow you to hide ends in the seam, making easy work of weaving them in. It is a good idea to leave yourself a little extra length on the end of a slippery yarn—aim for at leans 8″. Choose a sharp-tipped sewing needle with a large enough eye for the yarn and weave in as you would any other yarn, working up and down the seam stitch, sewing right through the middle of the yarn every few sts to anchor the end."

For more details on working with Mykonos, head over to the Berroco Design Team Blog.  

You can grab the pattern for Filia here and the yarn here.  Happy knitting!
