The weight and yardage of Be So Fresh Yarn is comparable to both Be So Serene Yarn and Be So Sporty Yarn and therefore Be So Fresh Yarn could easily be substituted for those patterns. The best advice for substituting yarn is to always make a swatch and measure the gauge after blocking. Due to the fact that all three of the sport weight yarns are made of different fibers, they will all react to water differently. Also, when shopping for patterns in general, this is a #2 fine, sport weight yarn with a suggested needle and hook size and gauge range as follows:

Suggested knitting gauge in stockinette:
23 - 26 sts per 4 inches
Suggested knitting needle sizes:
US 3 - 5 (3.25 - 3.75mm)
Larger needles can be used for blocked lacework
 

Suggested crochet gauge:
16 - 20 sts per 4 inches
Suggested crochet hook sizes: E/4 to H/8 (3.5 - 5mm)

As with all of Kristin Omdahl Yarns, a portion of every sale supports Project Kristin Cares, a charity dedicated to helping survivors of domestic violence.

Historically, linen is one of the first fibers that people made into string and cloth. Linen derives from the flax plant, which originated in the Mediterranean 'Fertile Crescent" part of the world. Flax is a tall, reed-like plant, with long fibers, which makes it easy to spin. Linen yarn is made from the cellulose fibers that grow inside of the stalks of the flax plant, one of the oldenst cultivated plants in human history. Cultivating plants is what helped humans evolve from hunters and gatherers to farmers.

Linen is so durable, it is even used in paper money to increase the strength! It is an incredibly durable fiber. It is stiff at first, but with use, wear and laundering, over time it becomes softer and softer. Linen garments and fabrics become heirlooms. I love linen yarn for market bags, home decor, place mats, summer sweaters, tank tops, lace skirts and dresses. And I could go on and on...
