  • New Favorites: My Top 5 Patterns for Sport-Weight Yarn!

    Februar 06, 2023 3 min lesen. 1 Kommentar

    Hello lovelies,

    I just had the best time browsing Ravelry - I wanted to update our Pinterest board with new pattern suggestions for sport-weight yarn, and figured out that I could filter out patterns that have been published in 2023, aka are brand new!

    There are some real gems in there, and so I couldn't resist pulling out my top 5 and trying to match them as close as possible to one of my all-time favorite sport-weight yarn: De Rerum Natura's Ulysse.

    We also just got a big restock, so all of the beautiful colors are now back! If you haven't tried Ulysse yet, I can only highly recommend it - it's a true gauge wonder, and perfect for pure stockinette, texture and colorwork alike. I love it both for myself (my beloved Citrine is in it!) as well as for Aurin (he's been living in a cardi I knit for him out of Ulysse).

    Without further ado, let's take a look at these new favorites:

    Syringa Sweater by Meiju K-P | Ulysse in Merlot

    Syringa Sweater

    Syringa is the latest pattern by Meiju K-P, and it's the perfect casual sweater, if you ask me. A deep, but not too deep V-neck, loose-fitting body and sleeves, and a long rib to balance it all out.

    Meiju originally designed this for two yarns held together, but it works up at a perfect sport-weight gauge. Merlot, one of my all-time favorite shades, in Ulysse would be a perfect match! Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 5 (6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7) (8, 8, 9, 10, 10, 11) skeins.

    Shocking Stripes Sweater by Tori Yu | Ulysse in Poivre Blanc and Genêt

    Shocking Stripes Sweater

    If you like a casual fit, but want something with a little more pizzazz, might I suggest Tori Yu's Shocking Stripes sweater? It's the perfect opportunity to play with all the different color combination possibilities of Ulysse!

    The stripes are not stranded colorwork, but an easy-to-accomplish two-color broken seed stitch. For a look similar to the sample, I would recommend Ulysse in Poivre Blanc and Genêt.

    Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 5, 5, 5 (6, 6, 7) (7, 8, 8) skeins of the main color, and 2, 2, 2 (2, 2, 2) (2, 3, 3) skeins of the contrasting color.

    Rose Garden Wrap by Lisa Hannes | Ulysse in Argile

    Rose Garden Wrap

    I adore a good wrap that can be worn in multiple different ways, and Lisa Hannes' Rose Garden Wrap just fits that bill! You start with one of the ribbed tips of the shawl, and work your way through a stunning cable-lace pattern that's flanked by garter ridges.

    Ulysse' Argile is super similar to the sample - but I think this wrap would look stunning in any color! You need 5 skeins for this project.

    Bee Mine! Cardigan by Roberta Rich | Ulysse in Doré and Crème Anglaise

    Bee Mine! Cardigan

    Ulysse is absolutely fantastic for kids's patterns, and so I was delighted to see this beautiful cardigan for little one's pop up in my Ravelry search. Roberta Rich's Bee Mine! is sized from 3 to 18 months, so while I won't be able to make one for Aurin, I would love to see one of you knitting it so that I can live vicariously through you!

    The cardigan uses two colors for the honeycomb and fun stripe pattern - for a look as close to the sample as possible, I would recommend Doré as the main color, and Crème Anglaise, a new-to-us pastel yellow, as the contrast color. You need 2 skeins of the main color, and 1 skein of the contrast color for all of the sizes.

    Virgília Cardigan by Patrícia Lima | Ulysse in Cacao or Quartz

    Virgilia Cardigan

    This photo stopped me in my tracks. How wonderful to see the same design on two people of different ages - and that tender love in the photo ... how special. Patrícia Lima's Virgília Cardigan was originally knit by her grandmother (right), and Patrícia adapted the design and wrote up a pattern for it. It's a super wearable V-neck cardigan with a lovely textural detail!

    I picked out two colors for this cardigan: Cacao, De Rerum Natura's new 2023 color, which is similar to Patrícia's version, and Quartz, a soft, pastel pink with grey undertones to match her grandmother's sample. Depending on the size you choose to knit, you need 5 (6, 8, 9) skeins.

    Tell me - which one is your favorite?

    6 Joyful Spring Knitting Patterns - My Current Favorites!
    6 Joyful Spring Knitting Patterns - My Current Favorites!

    April 10, 2024 4 min lesen.

    Hi lovelies! Spring has sprung here in Berlin – as I am typing this (mid March), the buds on the chestnut tree out the window are a few days away from bursting, the forsythias are in full bloom, and our strawberry plants have started their comeback as well (leaves so far, but Aurin checks every day for berries :)).

    So it's no surprise at all that today's blog post is very much inspired by the sun and the warmer days to come! I have put together a sweet roundup of 6 joyful spring knitting patterns, all of which I'd love to have on my needles soon. (If someone can get me an extra day or two per week to knit (oh, and to spin), I'd love that!)

    The three yarns I've paired them with are my favorite spring / summer yarns: De Rerum Natura's Antigone, a delightful sport-weight linen yarn, Wooldreamers' Saona, a 50% Spanish cotton, 50% Spanish wool blend, and Natissea's Pernelle, our newest spring yarn: A 100% European hemp yarn!

    Get to Know: Pernelle, our first 100% hemp yarn!

    Hi lovelies! As you might know, we are slowly, surely expanding the portfolio of the shop – I am always on the lookout for wonderful sustainable yarns that might fill gaps we still have, and one that was on the list since last summer was an additional spring / summer yarn.

    When I learned about Natissea, a French yarn company dedicated to organic plant yarns, from Audrey Borrego last year, I immediately contacted them to order some samples. As soon as I had Pernelle, their 100% European hemp yarn, on the needles, it was love – grippy, but not ropey, with a lovely drape that only got stronger after a good washing and blocking session.

    The shade cards had me swooning too – a really comprehensive, well-composed range of colors with something for everyone in it, from neutrals to spring-inspired pastels to deep jewel tones.

    So I was so pleased when Natissea accepted us as a stockist – and I am extra excited to introduce Pernelle to you. Our first 100% hemp yarn, perfect for summer tops, T-Shirts, and lightweight sweaters!

    I reached out to Mathilde over at Natissea and she graciously agreed to answer a few questions about Pernelle. I loved reading her answers!

    Hello lovelies!

    I am back today with a slightly unusual post that starts with a big, big apology to Liza Laird. Liza is a wonderful author (you might know her book Yoga of Yarn), knitter, teacher and yogi, and we were supposed to publish her beautiful poem "in and out", inspired by the ocean, in our Issue 11, "Seashore".

    While I was putting the final touches on our layout, I realized that we had a spread too many (we always print in increments of 4 pages, or 2 spreads) and inadvertently cut the spread with Liza's poem instead of the photo spread I meant to delete.
