Here are some great project ideas for some of the sale yarns we have in stock!
The Barnstable shawl was featured at the recent fibrefest and was super popular. It uses Malabrigo’s brand new yarn, Dos Tierras, a luxuriously soft blend of merino wool and baby alpaca. We have a sample of the shawl in store, and it uses a fun and rewarding mosaic technique to achieve the colourwork effect.
The Arika cowl by Jane Richmond has been a store favourite for the last few months. An easy knit that adds a bit of flair to your wardrobe and easy on the budget too since it only takes one skein! Hikoo Kenzington and Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone Natural Aran have been the yarns of choice.
Windham by Amy Christoffers at Berroco is a quick knit cowl in Cotolana a 50 Wool 50 Cotton blend. You get the marled effect by holding two strands together and it knits up quickly on 10mm needles. The finished wrap is delightfully squishy and a lot of fun playing with the different possible colour combinations! Make sure to check out the sample when you’re in store.
Finally, this sweet little lace number is called Pettine. It knits up beautifully with one skein of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Silk single – wonderful drape. It would also look great in Malabrigo Mechita. You can easily adjust the size of the shawl based on the amount of yarn you have and the garter stitch pattern is easy to memorize.
