Fyberspates Vivacious 4-Ply

Product information "Fyberspates Vivacious 4-Ply"

A beautiful hand dyed merino yarn with a high twist and fascinating colors: hand dyer Jeni Hewlett likes to dye in layers, so the colors will get an unusual depth. It's beautiful to work with, does not split and wears beautifully as it is really soft around the neck. A great choice for sweaters and accessories alike! The weight and yardage are ideal for many of Martina's shawl patterns.

Rüsch is specially designed for this yarn and you only need one skein.

Rüsch
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
R uffles are fun to wear and fun to knit – and they will make any simple outfit a little special: This little elegant scarf is called “Rüsch” (“Rüschen” is German and means “ruffles”). It was inspired by no one less than Prince himself, who wore a ruffled shirt in his “Purple Rain” video. “Rüsch” has just the right length to be slung around the neck and fastened with a knot, arranging the ruffled ends in the front so they look a little bit like the ruffles on Prince’s shirt. But there are other ways to wear it if you play with the wide ends and tuck them in! “Rüsch” works very well with that one special skein of hand dyed yarn you have been keeping in your stash for a special occasion – but it will look great in the yarn we chose for this sample, which is the softly variegated “Vivacious 4-ply” by Fyberspates. The scarf is knit lengthwise and can be worked longer and wider if you wish (you will need more yarn if you choose to). The ruffles are worked with short rows, which is an easy technique that I will show you in a video. With this pattern, you can use up all the yarn you have – just keep on knitting until it is gone!

Hortensien
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Hydrangeas (German: Hortensien) are little wonders of color: In summer, they blossom white, pink or baby blue, but their true beauty shows in fall, when the petals assume dark purple, blue and grayish tones that look just fascinating. This color play was the inspiration for our club color, and this design: Starting with two identical triangles in garter stitch, you will later connect them via a pretty lace panel, resulting in a special shape that is a delight to wear. The pattern for the lace insert is provided as written-out instructions and as a chart. Find the beautiful "Vivacious 4-ply" by Fyberspates that we used for the sample here in Strickmich! Shop.
