Mayu – A new free pattern from Espace Tricot

mayu4

Mayu is an easy to wear pullover that is perhaps best described as a stylish poncho with sleeves. The tweediness of the Fine Donegal and the soft halo of the Silk Cloud combine to create a beautiful fabric that is both slightly rustic and decidedly sophisticated. Cozy and chic!

The left back of sweater is knit first, stitches for right half are picked up from cast on edge. Front is knit separately. After sewing up the sweater, the turtleneck is added by picking up stitches around the neck opening.

Join us for an Om Shawl Knit-Along!

om1

One of our favourite additions to the store this year has been Woolstok yarn from Blue Sky Fibers.  This worsted-weight yarn is strong and sturdy but gently plied to give it lightness, loft, and a soft hand. Rich in character with excellent stitch definition, Woolstok is a workhorse yarn that’s easy to love. A dream to knit with and available in a beautiful palette of slightly heathered colourways, it’s perfect for everything from accessories to sweaters.

21_color_2

The first project we decided to knit with this wooly goodness was Andrea Mowry’s Om Shawl – and we couldn’t be happier with the result.  With colour and technique changes throughout, the wrap is entertaining to knit and a gorgeous, versatile addition to any winter wardrobe.  After a light steam blocking of the finished wrap, the fabric softened and relaxed but retained body and loft – exactly what one wants from a 100% wool yarn! We opted for shades of grey with a pop of chartreuse for our store sample but the sky’s the limit when it comes to colour-play with this pattern. Need inspiration? Click here to browse amazing versions of this project on Ravelry.  

Here’s designer Andrea Mowry’s version of the wrap…

We will be running our Om Shawl Knit-Along as both an in-store and virtual event (through Ravelry) beginning January 26th. If you are able to join us in the shop, we will meet for 4 consecutive Thursdays – January 26, February 2, 9, and 16 – from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. No need to register (this is a free activity), simply come in on those dates ready to cast on and knit the Om Shawl among friends.

We will open an Om Shawl KAL thread in our Ravelry group a few days before the knit-along start date. We invite you to join us there (even if you are knitting with us in-store) to indicate your intention to participate and to chatter and share photos of works in progress.

If you complete your Om Shawl by March 2nd and upload your photo to the finished object thread for this knit-along in our Ravelry group, you will have a chance to win an Espace Tricot Eco Tote and a Woolstok 21-Colour Slouch Kit! The winner will be chosen via random number generator from the finished object thread (one entry per person only please).

We hope you’ll join us!

The Om Shawl can be purchased and downloaded from Ravelry HERE.

SHOP Woolstok in our webstore! (Note: Select colours also available in 150g skeins.)
Don’t see the colour you need? New stock will be arriving soon!

And, by the way, even though we love Woolstok yarn for this wrap, any worsted to aran yarn will work depending on the weight, drape, and colour story you’re looking for.

New store sample: Endless Wrap by Sylvia Hager

b_1

Lisa and I first saw the Endless Wrap by Sylvia Hager on the runway at the the National Needlearts Trade Show in the Spring and were smitten with the texture and generous scale of it. When we visited the Blue Sky Fibers booth we tumbled even further in love when we felt the Woolstok yarn – lofty and cozy and decidedly wooly. In the end, we decided to knit our version somewhat shorter than the original (we used six 50 g balls instead of nine) but it is still very generous in length!

View additional photos and project details on our Ravelry page.

Note: Woolstok is available in the full colour range in 50 g balls and in several neutrals in 150 g balls. Two 150 g balls would be enough to complete a version like ours.

Project Ideas for Artfil Colour Bundles

Ombre Infinity by Cynthia Parker

ombre_infinity

(Photo: Cynthia Parker)

The Ombre Infinity by Cynthia Parker calls for sport weight yarn but, since the Artfil Belle base is  a heavy fingering weight, we think it would create a wonderful version of this pattern. Very on trend and versatile, wear this scarf as a single or double loop or pull it up over your head for stylish protection from the elements.


Mad Mini Wrap by Sharyn Anhalt

mad_mini_wrap

(Photo: Gingersnap)

Although the Mad Mini Wrap by Sharyn Anhalt uses 5 colours and the Artfil Colour Bundles have 6, with a little tweak here and there in the colour usage / placement, the finished scarf will be fabulous!


Contravene by Lynn Di Cristina

lynn-0780

(Photo: Lynn Di Cristina)

Simple stockinette and lace are alternated in the lovely colour changing Contravene scarf by Lynn Di Cristina. Simply knit to the end of each skein in Artfil’s colour bundle until the end!  I think for this one, we would suggest going up to a 4mm needles and casting on slightly fewer stitches.


Belle Speckles

Five new speckled colourways in Belle are also now available in store and online. Aren’t they amazing? ARTFIL Belle is an ideal sock blend of 80% superwash merino wool and 20% nylon. One skein is enough to complete a pair of socks, two will create a good sized lace shawl.
 Each skein is hand-painted using 80% less water than any other dyeing method.
 Machine washable and versatile, Belle is suitable for all fingering weight projects.
