The first issue of the Knit & Stitch magazine included two balls of yarn from Bergere de France – Barisienne yarn in colours Nil and Nerine. Barisienne yarn is the cheapest yarn from Bergere de France. It’s a 100% acrylic round yarn that’s perfect for beginners.
Also as a bonus this issue included aluminium knitting needles in size 3.5mm. I personally prefer bamboo needles as the stitches don’t run off as easily on them.
The Nil (green) colour is for the first patchwork square (Throw 1D).
It’s knitted in the most basic stitch – garter stitch using 3.5mm knitting needles.
