  • What to Knit with Unspun Yarn - our Big Pattern Inspiration Roundup!

    Januar 17, 2023 3 min lesen. 2 Kommentare

    Hi lovelies,

    I'm back today with the first of two blog posts to celebrate the addition of our first unspun yarn to the shop - Wooldreamers' Manchelopis! (Coming on January 20!)

    You know how much I love exploring knitting patterns, thinking about good pattern and yarn combinations, and finding gems that not a lot of people know about (yet). So it comes as exactly no surprise to anyone that I had the BEST time putting together pattern ideas for knitting with unspun yarn - so much so that there are way too many to fit into a blog post.

    Which is why I've created a whole Pinterest board for patterns for unspun yarn! It's filled to the brim with accessories and garments, all selected with an eye to size inclusivity and aiming for a broad mix of designers.

    If you have a favorite unspun pattern that is missing (bonus points for designs by BIPOC folx!), do let me know in the comments below and I'll add it!

    Patterns for Unspun Yarn
    But... I can't leave you without a few gems that I've been loving since I started my collections of unspun patterns. You might know from my latest podcast episode that I'm knitting Melody Hoffman's Gentle Lopi Tunic, but one of these four is destined to hop on my needles after that:

    Building Blocks Drop by Aimee Sher

    Building Blocks DropAimee has quickly become one of my absolute favorite knitwear designers. She goes above and beyond to create patterns that actually fit different body shapes, not just sizes, and her designs feel like timeless classics that you just want to wear and wear and wear. (My Coloring Book Raglan is still one of my favorite things I've ever made!)
    The Building Blocks Drop is hands-down the best drop-shoulder sleeve sweater I've ever seen. In Aimee's own words:
    "The perfect basic with the flawless fit, with thoughtful underarm shaping and optional bust darts to achieve a better fit across all sizes and make sure that shoulder drop really is in the mid-upper arm, not all the way in the elbows! Plus, there are bust darts to make sure your bust is fully accommodated."
    Like with all of Aimee's patterns, this one comes with a ton of options: Full sleeves or sleeve-less (resulting in the perfect T-shirt shape), pockets, split hem, just to name a few. SO GOOD.

    Gaca Shawl by Jean-Philippe Cliche

    Gaca ShawlBig shoutout to Elsa for bringing this fabulous geometric shawl to my attention!

    Jean-Philippe Cliche's Gaca Shawl comes in two versions; one for holding Manchelopis single, the second one for holding it double. In both, the fabric promises to be so, so warm and snuggly!

    I adore the diamond texture pattern, and I love how cleverly the shape of the shawl echoes it. There are so many ways you could wear this - as a scarf, around your shoulders, bandana-style...

    Moorland Mittens by Tania Barley

    Moorland Mittens

    Disclaimer: These only come in one size, which would normally have been a no-go for this list, but I couldn't find a good other pair of mittens in unspun. If you know of one, let me know!

    When I was looking for smaller projects for those of you who'd like to dip their toes into the unspun yarn waters, I couldn't stop looking at Tania Barley's Moorland Mittens!

     

    They come in a fingerless and a full mittens version, and I'm imagining them to be super warm and cozy. The lovely branch-like detail on reverse stockinette is both adding warmth and whimsy, something I adore!

    Wetherell Sweater by Kiyomi Burgin

    Wetherell Sweater

    Coming full circle here - I first stumbled across this pattern on Aimee Sher's Instagram where she posted that it's been her go-to sweater this winter.

    I LOVE the shape of Kiyomi Burgin's Wetherell Sweater, especially that fantastic funnel neck! The loose fit is what I'm craving right now - lots of flowy fabric, great for wearing over leggings or high-waisted jeans. And that two-color yoke is too good to be true.

    The details are also absolutely fabulous: The contrasting bind off at the sleeves, and the fact that the increases in the yoke are so cleverly hidden in the pattern. Perfect for trying out one of the new punchy shades of Manchelopis!

    You know that I can't wait to hear what you want to cast on - comment down below with your favorite pattern for knitting with unspun yarn!

    There are so many options for unspun yarn! I love the list you’ve created! I am just finishing the Lighthouse Keeper pullover from the book Salt & Timber, and it worked perfectly. Designers that frequently use unspun include Ailbíona McLochlainn and Melody Hoffmann. I think Sweater # 8 would look great (by My Favorite Things) as well as anything by Jennifer Steingass or the Sailor Gansey by Hanne Rimmen. I have also wanted to knit the Lupine pullover by Hanne Rimmen in unspun (such an incredibly beautiful yoke).

    12 Combinations of Bérénice and Semilla Melange I Love
    12 Combinations of Bérénice and Semilla Melange I Love

    Hi my lovelies! When we received our latest restock of BC Garn's Semilla Melange (one of my favorite sustainable budget-friendly yarns - 100% wool, non-superwash, GOTS-certified), I couldn't resist: I had to pull out our box of De Rerum Natura Bérénice, the wonderful fluffy silk-mohair-merino yarn, to see if I could find a few color matches.

    And I did! 12 perfect matches – I couldn't believe it. So naturally, I had to share them with you!

    24 Perfect Color Matches for Zauberwolle

    Hi lovelies! You know how much I adore our 100% non-superwash wool color-changing yarn "Zauberwolle", right? I already knit myself a Pressed Flowers Hat and a Pressed Flowers Cardigan in it, and I can't wait to get the next project on the needles.

    I thought it would be really cool to combine Zauberwolle with BC Garn's Semilla Melange, a wonderfully woolly GOTS-certified sport-weight yarn. (I knit the Pressed Flowers Cardigan in this exact combo, and it's a good one.) So imagine my delight when I realized how many colors of Semilla Melange actually work perfectly with the color-changing magic of Zauberwolle!

    Without further ado, let me introduce you to a whopping 24 perfect color matches!

    What to make with hand-spun yarn
    What to make with hand-spun yarn

    Mai 22, 2024 4 min lesen.

    The joy of spinning your own yarn is that you can design the yarn from the fibre up. In theory this means you can hold the pattern or project you’d like to make in mind, and create the yarn to match. 

    However in practice, at least at the beginning, that’s often not how it goes. Perhaps your spinning is either a bit inconsistent, or you find it hard to spin to a specific weight of yarn. Maybe you enjoy spinning from gloriously dyed variegated fibre and the result is very busy-looking yarn. It might be that you have small, precious skeins of practice yarn, or on the other end of the scale, you’re amassing hand-spun yarn faster than you can possibly knit through it.
