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…
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.
