Emilie says:

The collection is called “golden” and I got inspired by the golden evening light of Florida where I have moved a year ago. Everything turns to yellows and oranges, and it is just so pretty ! It is also a pun, because I feel so “golden”, so lucky to have moved here and to be in a great space in my life right now and to be so happy in my personal life. It is also an attempt to show people that we are all lucky in one way or another, that you have to choose to see things and life from a positive perspective 🙂

The collection is composed of 3 pieces:
– a very versatile shawl, that you can also use as a scarf, wrap, and even little blanket to put on your cold feet or to cover a baby
– a clutch because you always need a trendy knitted accessory in life, right ?
– a headband because they always save the day and make you look chic even though you’re having a bad hair day.

Second April MFPP- Joji Locatelli’s April Showers!

Now that we’re halfway through April, I’m thrilled to present the second April Showers ebook, this time by Joji Locatelli!

In Joji’s words:

This collection of patterns is a tribute to spring, to rain, to flowers blooming everywhere! Let the spring fall down on your needles and bring the freshness of springtime knits. Let lightweight yarns seduce you with their softness and airyness…

You will find in this pattern booklet projects made with Malabrigo’s lighter yarns: Arroyo (sport weight), Sock (fingering weight) and Lace (of course, lace weight). Their colors and textures are endless sources for inspiration. They make me happy, when skies are gray…

(I love that amazing umbrella yoke!)

 

You can see the full collection on Ravelry. Or, browse all our MFPP patterns on the MFPP Ravelry Page! Thank you, Joji, for a beautiful collection!

Patterns for Aquarella!

Capillata by Myhrria Resneck

Capillata by Myhrria Resneck

We don’t get to see too many patterns specifically designed for our watercolored yarn, Aquarella. It’s super bulky, very textured, and fun to knit with — most people buy it for scarves. But it is so fun to see it knit up in a pattern specifically designed for it! Click the picture to go to the Ravelry link for this Capilatta wrap! It requires roughly 6 skeins of Aquarella for most sizes – a few more and a few less for the smallest and largest. I love the sideways construction!
