By:Marie Amelie Designs
(A purchase pattern on Ravelry)

Yarn: Lang Alpaca Soxx 4-ply

Okay. Okay. I couldn't help myself!! Started this beautiful lightweight cardigan a few days ago. The textured design is super easy but so effective. I can't even tell you how much I love this yarn. Sock yarn you say? Yup. And it is so very very soft. A joy to work with on the needles. I think I am in Love. Think Spring in Paris. SHOP ALPACA SOXX here

23-01 Texture Scarf by Nancy Lekx

Here is a little, luxurious project to knit for yourself, or for someone special. Designed originally for DK weight yarn, it works up quite quickly, and the simple 4-stitch, 2-row repeat lends itself to meditative knitting. Knit on the bias, the parallelogram shape creates graceful points on the ends, and the rich texture traps air and helps insulate from the cold.

We are suggesting Drops Baby Merino Sport for this project.

Pattern on Ravelry $2.50 CAD

Drops Baby Merino

A beautiful super soft, super squishy, superwash merino wool. You will enjoy every minute knitting with this yarn. It will make a delicious Texture Scarf.

Project Idea #11

Project Idea #10 Spring series - Dame De Fer - a beautiful lightweight cardigan. Exactly the right thing for spring.

Dam De Fer
By: Marie Amelie Designs

A free pattern on Ravelry

Decorated with an easy-to-work slip stitch pattern, this cardigan will have you dressed for the Eiffel Tower in no time. Inspired by the ironwork that makes up the exquisitely engineered tower, you will work from the top down, seamlessly to have a season-spanning sweater tout de suite. Pattern provided in both charted and written formats.

We are thinking of our new Alpaca Soxx 4-ply for this project. Fingering weight, 70% alpaca, and oh so soft and squishy. You can make socks out of it but why would you? Shop Dame de Fer - Yarn choices
