Well, as if we couldn’t love Rasta enough. It’s always been one of the softest yarns of any weight with inspiring luscious colorways but now they have come out with the most sophisticated pastel tones to match with any wardrobe choice. Colors like Almond Blossom, Melon and Cucumber (among others) will tempt your knitting tastebuds.
The Arteixo Cowlby Kristen Nieves is a free pattern specifically designed for Rasta - a single ply, super bulky weight merino wool.
This yarn has that “I want to wrap myself in this” feel. You can imagine yourself knitting a lap blanket, a sweatshirt-type sweater, a wrap around cowl or scarf, anything that will give you that hug of warmth. We think it’s the boucle texture that gives this yarn that extra feeling of warmth.
Rowan has released several free patterns to inspire your next project. The pattern collection booklet is available with purchase of Rowan Cosy Merino yarn - while supplies last. We can't wait to knit the Stocking Stitch Beanie and the Cabled Scarf - both by Quail Studio.
"Westport Bay" Baby Blanket
Ella Rae Cashmereno Sport yarn has all the qualities of your favorite baby cash merino yarn and more! We’ve taken it a step further with our own take on the beloved Hudson Bay Blanket. The Westport Bay Blanket is knit in five colors. We have chosen colors along the traditional lines but feel free to make your own statement, thats the fun of it! The finished blanket is next-to-the-skin soft, lightweight yet warm and washable.
