  • Team Picks: Our Favorite Patterns for Holst Garn Supersoft

    Oktober 18, 2023 3 min lesen.

    Hi lovelies! To celebrate that Holst Garn Supersoft, an absolute rockstar when it comes to texture and colorwork, is back in the shop, we thought it would be fun to do a "Team Picks" pattern roundup!

    Each one of us picked a pattern they'd love to knit with Holst Garn Supersoft and the colorways they'd make it in.

    Ready? Here we go!

    Isabell: Lamina Sweater by Jennifer Brou | Holst Garn Supersoft in Tundra (MC) and Spring (CC) or Venetian (MC) and Brandy (CC)

    Isabell chose one of our star colorwork patterns of all time: Jennifer Brou's Lamina Sweaterfrom Issue 5, also available as an individual PDF. Lamina is knit from the top down and features a stunning colorwork yoke that was inspired by the complex systems of veins found in leaves. Layers and layers of leaf blades give this extraordinary design so much depth while the slightly oversized fit makes Lamina extra comfy.

    Isabell picked two color combinations: Tundra as the main color and Spring as the contrasting color for a color scheme that's close to the original sample. For a different, and super striking look, they suggest Venetian as the main color and Brandy as the contrast. Stunning, right?

    Depending on the size you choose to knit, you need 4 (4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6) cakes of Holst Garn Supersoft in the main color and 1 (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2) cakes in the contrasting color.

    Jen: Abloom Cardigan by Anne Ginger | Holst Garn Supersoft in Mariner

    While Holst Garn Supersoft is great for colorwork, it's also a super versatile yarn that works well with stockinette and texture. Jen chose Anne Ginger's Abloom Cardigan from Issue 9 which would look absolutely marvelous knit up in this gentle, lightweight yarn!

    Abloom is a great layering piece, perfect for the transitional seasons. It's knit from the bottom up with a moderately dropped armhole that creates a fabulous fit.

    I love that Jen chose a very saturated color for her pattern - Mariner is a deep, dark blue that would look amazing with Abloom's stitch pattern.

    Depending on the size you choose to knit, you need 6 (6, 7, 7, 7) [8, 8, 8, 9, 10] cakes of Holst Garn Supersoft for the Abloom Cardigan.

    Jess: Cingles Vest by Elena Solier Jansà | Holst Garn Supersoft in Flannel Grey (MC), Graphite, Topaz, Clover Leaf, Brass, and Almond (CCs)

    Jess went all out in terms of colorwork with her pattern choice! Elena Solier Jansà's Cingles Vest from Issue 8 is a fantastic layering piece with super-fun colorwork bands. It's inspired by traditional Fair Isle knits and in true fashion, you knit it bottom up and steek the neckline and armholes.

    For a warm, fall-inspired Cingles Vest, Jess chose Flannel Grey as the main color and Graphite, Topaz, Clover Leaf, Brass and Almond as contrasting colors.

    Depending on the size you want to knit, you need 2 (2, 3, 3, 3) [3, 3, 4, 4, 4] cakes of Holst Garn Supersoft of your main color, 1 cake each of CC1, CC3, and CC5, and 1( 1, 1, 1, 2) [2, 2, 2, 2, 2] cakes of CC2 and CC4.

    Hanna Lisa: Rose des Sables by Caroline Blay | Holst Garn Supersoft in Cranberry and De Rerum Natura Bérénice in Confiture de Rose

    I never thought I was a headband person, and then our photoshoot for Issue 10 came around and I put on Caroline Blay's Rose des Sables- game changer! This sweet headband combines a large-scale lace pattern with a bow without seeming too cutesy. I can't wait to make my own!

    For my own version, I would love to combine Holst Garn Supersoft with De Rerum Natura's Bérénice. The original sample of Rose des Sables also combines a lightweight wool yarn with a fluffy one, and that little bit of halo is just everything! Holst Garn Supersoft's Cranberry would look absolutely amazing held with Bérénice's Confiture de Rose, I think. A fabulous pop of color for colder days!

    You only need 1 cake of Holst Garn Supersoft and 1 skein of Bérénice to make Rose des Sables in any size.

    I can't wait to get this on my needles! I am so happy we have Holst Garn Supersoft back in stock, and I am so curious what you're going to make with it.

    Do you have a favorite pattern that you can't wait to cast on with this fabulous yarn? Tell me about it in the comments!

    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.
