I have been absolutely thrilled with the great response to Ysolda's pattern book 'Saturday Treat' and the yarn to support the designs. I thought it was about time that I indulge you all and fill you in with the details.
'Saturday Treat' is an exciting new collaboration between Ysolda and Fyberspates. The six accessory patterns in Saturday Treat feature a colour palette specially selected by Ysolda in Fyberspates Scrumptious. Here's what Ysolda had to say about it:
"Combining silky luxury and crisp stitch definition, Scrumptious has always been one of my go to yarns, especially for special little projects. Colors practically glow with a rich depth so it was a delightful treat for me to put together an exclusive palette and accompanying designs."
The yarns Ysolda selected are: 2 Lace, 2 4ply, 2 Aran and each have special Ysolda labels. As the theme of the collection is cakes, sweets and treats you'll find names such as 'Treacle Toffee' and 'Flying Saucer' to tempt you. You can purchase all 6 exclusive colourways here.
The book Saturday Treats, is a hardback book available here for £9. It features photo support so that you can really see interesting details against a relaxing background. As always with Ysolda's patterns, there are both written and charted instructions, laid out in a clear and easy to navigate way. Included patterns are-
Almond Comfit (an aran weight hat)
Barley Sugar (a lace weight cowl)
Edinburgh Rock (an aran weight scarf)
Pear Drop (a laceweight shawl)
Sherbet Lemon (4 ply mittens)
Walnut Whip (4 play hat)
As you can see the range is very versatile meaning that you can truly have a Saturday treat with these pretty little additions to your wardrobe, or gifts that you’ll know will be treasured. Make the most of your special knitting time with Ysolda and Scrumptious!
