  • My 5 Favorite Patterns for Fluffy Yarns

    September 07, 2023 4 min lesen.

    Hello lovelies,

    One of my all-time favorite tasks when we get a new yarn in is to put together pattern and color combinations. And with Bérénice, De Rerum Natura's sustainably produced Mohair / Merino / Silk yarn (fluffy like a cloud!), the possibilities for patterns and colors are close to endless!

    I narrowed it down to my five favorite patterns (well, of right now) in color combinations that showcase the full rainbow of Bérénice colors. I've put a ton more patterns over on our Pinterest Board for pattern inspo for fluffy yarns if you're looking for more!

    Now, though, let's take a look at my top 5!

    Theophrastus T-Shirt by Valerie Rachel | Bérénice in Badiane and Avoine


    I had to start with Theophrastus by Valerie Rachel as I immediately knew this was going to be my first project in Bérénice. It was originally published in Issue 9, and uses two fluffy yarns held double. Those ruffles are just the best thing!

    I am knitting my version in two pretty contrasty colors: Badiane, a wonderful deep rusty red, and Avoine, a warm white-almost-pink. Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 3 (4, 4, 4, 5) (5, 5, 6, 7, 7) skeins of each colorway.

    Merrymaker Sweater by Jill Thompson Beach | Ulysse in Poivre Blanc and Bérénice in Sauge, Doré, and Tutu

    Merrymaker Sweater

    Stripes are an all-year-round favorite, and I just love Jill Thompson Beach's take on them in Merrymaker: Combining chevron-like stripes with two different yarns and four different colors should not work, but it does. It DOES.

    By combining Bérénice with Ulysse, we have the two different yarns, and we can stay really close to the original sample colors with Ulysse in Poivre et Sel, and Bérénice in Sauge, Doré, and Tutu.

    Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 4 (4, 4, 5, 5) (5, 6, 6, 7, 7) skeins of Ulysse and 2 skeins of Bérénice in each of the contrast colors.

    Hibiscus Bralette by Kjerstin Rovetta | Ulysse in Bois de Rose and Bérénice in Confiture de Rose

    Hibiscus Bralette

    Kjerstin Rovetta's Hibiscus Braletteis one of the newest patterns on our site, and I am so thrilled that we finally also have yarn to knit it with! It's the perfect late-summer staple and even great for layering when the colder temperatures come.

    I went for a little bit punchier pink than in the sample - Ulysse in Bois de Rose for the main part and Bérénice in Confiture de Rose for the peplum. Wouldn't that look stunning? (You can do the icord straps in Bois de Rose as well!)

    Depending on the size you choose to knit, you need 2 (2, 2, 2, 3) (3, 3, 3, 4, 4) skeins of Ulysse and 1 (1, 1, 2, 2) (2, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins of Bérénice.

    Multitudes Hat by Making Stories | Gilliatt in Cyprès and Bérénice in Cyprès

    Multitudes Hat

    I love the idea of pairing Bérénice with Gilliatt, and I am so excited to be trying this out with my second project: A new Multitudes Hat! I think the cables will look so lovely and soft.

    One of the colorways I fell head over heels in love with in Bérénice is Cyprès. It's a wonderful deep tealy blue-green, and we luckily have exactly the same color in Gilliatt! If you wanted to stay closer to the original sample colors, you could go for Bérénice and Gilliatt in Caramel.

    For all the sizes, you only need 1 skein of Gilliatt and 1 skein of Bérénice.

    Bindweed Cardigan by Ksenia Naidyon | Ulysse in Nuit and Bérénice in Belle Étoile

    Bindweed Cardigan

    I could not write this blog post without showing you the one, all-time favorite pattern that would be perfect for Bérénice: Ksenia Naidyon's Bindweed Cardigan.Originally published in Issue 5, it's been knit so, so, so many times - and rightly so, because it's both so enjoyable to work on and also so fantastic to wear. (Yes, I know what I'm talking about, I have one in my wardrobe!)

    Bindweed combines the most beautiful cabled balloon sleeves with a cropped, modern shape and a super-fun-to-knit construction that also makes it easy to adjust it to your body. What more could we knitters ask for, really?

    I've been dreaming of a blue version (mine is in pink), and so I picked Ulysse in Nuit held with Bérénice in Belle Étoile to create a jewel-toned wardrobe staple that can be both dressed up and down.

    Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9) skeins of Ulysse and 5 (5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins of Bérénice.

    Which one is your favorite? And which colorway(s) would you choose?

    Also - if you want to check out our Pinterest Board filled to the brim with pattern inspo for fluffy yarns, you're more than welcome to do so!

    FOs #... ? / 2023: My Crystal Socks and Rose des Sables Headband from Issue 10!

    Hi lovelies! I kind of completely dropped the ball on putting FO posts out there, but as you all very kindly let me know through our "what do you want to read on the blog" survey, you actually really like them, so we have some catching up to do!

    We're starting with two FOs that have actually quite recently only been finished – if by recently we mean the end of 2023. They're both from Issue 10, and were both a delight to knit!

    My Favorite 3 Patterns for Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle
    My Favorite 3 Patterns for Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle

    Februar 06, 2024 3 min lesen.

    Hi lovelies! I adore a good color-changing yarn, so imagine my excitement when I found a non-superwash, 100% wool version (not so easy to come by)! Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle comes in at 250 m / 273 yds per 100 g and knits up beautifully to a fingering-weight, sport-weight and DK gauge.

    It's fabulous on its own, and great combined with neutral solids! My top picks for yarns to go with Zauberwolle are BC Garn Semilla Melange, De Rerum Natura Ulysse and Holst Garn Supersoft. All three have a broad color range, so finding a matching or contrasting solid to your chosen color-changing yarn should be a breeze!
