The Poze Throw by Debrosse


You can buy this pattern from the designer on Ravelry.

I wouldn’t normally crochet in an aran weight woolly yarn, but I’ve made this throw using Alpaca with Shetland. It’s the simplest pattern ever, so an ideal project for watching the TV to. It looks like a woven waffle weave and you can make it any size. My limitation was making sure it didn’t get too big to fit inside the washing machine. Once I had finished it, I gave it a wash in the machine on a 30 degree wool cycle with short spin. I dried it flat and when it was 99% dry, it had a quick blast in the tumble drier to tighten up the stitches and fluff it up a bit. It’s beautifully warm and cosy.

I used about a kg of yarn for this project. I might make it again using a DK weight yarn.

Alpaca with Shetland


Fernet Branca by Thea Colman

Fernet Branca features a simple textured block motif, bookended by bold ribs and cables on either side of the body. On the back or front of the sweater, is a central spine.  Cables are both charted and written.  The sweater is knitted from the bottom up in 4 pieces (front, back, sleeves) and seamed at shoulders, underarm and sides. Seams are straight and simple.  We knitted this jumper in our Alpaca with Shetland aran yarn in Turquoise.  Although I really like the boxy shape of the pattern, I decided to lengthen it so I didn’t get a cold gap between the jumper and my jeans.
