Today we received a Classic Elite trunk show featuring booklet, Prairie #9127. All four garments are made with Portland Tweed, an aran weight 50% Wool/ 25% Rayon /25% Alpaca with 120 yards per 50 gram ball. The little flecks of tweed make each color interesting. I love the way this yarn has a traditional woolly feel and look but also has a soft halo of alpaca hairs.
Each pattern is simple and classic with little details like smocking and cables.
Portland Tweed, color Tidal Foam (#5004)
Tumbleweed, a fair isle yoke pullover worked in the round from the bottom up.
My favorite, Thistle. A cable and ribbed slouchy hat. This hat uses two balls of Portland Tweed. I already have a color picked out! I'm going to use Sulfur #5075. (pictured below in the Barley cardigan)
Sarsparilla, shown here in color Rosewater #5052.
A simple garter stitch shawl with a cabled edge and fringe.
The fringe is created by dropping stitches.
This wonderful cardigan is called Barley. A simple shawl collar with smocking shaping the waist and cuffs and a simple tie closure. This is one of those patterns that you don't need to change. Everything is perfect, even the color, Sulfur #5075.
Come in and check them all out!
