In my search for yarns of European origin, I came across Ulysse.
De Rerum Natura is a French brand that uses local Merino wool. The yarn is amazingly soft next to the skin and incredibly pleasant to work! The carding process allow to create very natural melange shades and vivid patterned colours. You can see the full colour range here
In the meantime, I'm experiencing the traditional fair isle style thanks to this great book that I received from Santa this Christmas.
The books is full of useful tricks and interesting motifs!
I was inspired by the geometric motifs traditionally used for socks, including these lines in a very feminine shape with low contrast colours.
I just added to the ingredients: joy!
Yvette is worked top down, totally seamlessly. As always, I modified the traditional circular yoke to achieve a perfect shaping. The result is a comfortable cardigan, suitable in every occasion, designed to be worn!
Yvette is available with a 25% discount until Sunday, June 14th at midnight (Rome Time). Discount applied at the checkout. No coupon code needed.
