Beautiful Projects – Cria

June 21, 2016

Team Ysolda recently welcomed a new member – say hello to Nuala! For this week’s Beautiful Projects post it was her pick, and she went for Cria. It’s a sweater she’s had the yarn ready for since trying on the original sample at Edinburgh Yarn Festival three years ago, and there are plans to cast on soon. Here are a few of my favourites that are making me want to add it to my own queue too…

I just love this version by Amber from Fancy Tiger Crafts, so stylish! You can read more about her sweater on the Fancy Tiger blog. (Photo copyright: Fancy Tiger Crafts)

The contrasting buttons on this Cria by FrlRolle work so perfectly, grey and yellow is such a great combination. There’s more on her sweater on her blog here.

The body of Cria is a great canvas for experimenting with different stitch patterns and textures, like in this lovely example by Freddy.

Another perfect combination of colours with the contrasting buttons in Catbus’s Cria, and a perfect fit too. 

I can’t stop admiring the great colour of this Cria by whitehart, and another lovely fit.
