Beautiful Projects – 2016 Club

by ysoldateague December 01, 2016 2 min read

It’s time! We were so excited to open sign ups for the 2017 Ysolda club yesterday. There are some wonderful treats in store so if you’re looking for a gift for yourself, or a sweet surprise for a friend the link to sign up is here. Places are limited and we hope you’ll love what we have planned for next year.

The 2016 club saw some lovely new accessories added to knitters’ wardrobes so for today I had a look at the club project pages for the first three designs. The fourth, Haematoylum, knitted in yarn naturally dyed by Shilsadair was recently released to members so I haven’t included it here to avoid spoilers! But if you’d like to have a look you can find it through 2016 club designs page on Ravelry. All designs will be released to all individually later next year.

Fraxinus was the third of this year’s club projects – an elegantly shaped cowl in a luxurious wool, silk and cashmere goat blend dyed by The Uncommon Thread. SiO2’s project photos do a wonderful job of showing the shape, and lovely stitch definition of the cables. 

The Ornas hat and mitts set was a cosy colourwork project, using a gorgeous sportweight Swedish wool, dyed the Debbie of The Skein Queen. This set by DiminshedCoping shows the lovely halo of the yarn, so warm!

SiO2 knit up an Ornas Hat in a different yarn (as well as the club yarn!), and I love how her project photos show the clever short row shaping in the garter brim, perfect for keeping your ears cosy… 

Banyan was the first pattern of the 2016 club, and perfect for shawl fans as it was designed in two styles – a long rectangular wrap or crescent. Kissu’s lovely version shows the wrap, as well as the stunning colour of the laceweight wool dyed by Triskelion Yarn and Fibre.  

Jorunellen’s knit the crescent shaped version of Banyan, showing the stunning cables… 

And finally, another Ornas hat and mitt set, knit up by the wonderfully smiley iamsarah. Although living in Canada her notes mention that she knit them mostly on a holiday to Edinburgh and Cardiff. Hopefully a nice reminder of her trip!
