We’ve been alluding to lots of activity behind the scenes at Fyberspates for some months and the patterns are finally all nicely queued up and ready for release. This week, it's all about the Cumulus patterns, showcasing our light fingering weight 74% Baby Suri Alpaca and 26% Silk yarn blend that comes in 25g balls of 150 metres [164 yards]. You will find plenty of inspiration both in terms of patterns but also guest posts, bloggers elsewhere on the internet joining in the chat as well as tutorials, focuses on technique and giveaways.
Kicking us off first is Aolani.
Aolani, meaning ‘heavenly cloud’, are the perfect mittens to transition into colder weather. Super-soft and cosy, these fingerless mitts are knitted flat to allow a smooth transition of stripes using Cumulus baby alpaca and silk yarn.
The perfect knit for a novice knitter, the stripes add interest for those more experienced knitters and allows for some colour play in the darker days that winter can bring. Working with 3 colour choices, these mitts require less than 1 ball of each colour and are shown here in ‘Sea Green’, ‘Water’ and ‘Teal’.
Wrap your hands in the cloudlike softness of Cumulus this Autumn. We will be featuring retailers of Cumulus on Facebook all this week as we release our Cumulus patterns so be sure to check if your local yarn store has Cumulus in stock.
