Trunk Show Project Recommendations

Posted by lisa reid on

Let's face it:  choice can be overwhelming, especially when all the choices are as gorgeous as the yarns offered in our online Julie Asselin trunk show this season.  In order to help you narrow down some of the possibilities into projects you'll love, we've made a list of some pattern recommendations that we think are the perfect pairings with these beautiful yarns.  

If you have an idea for a great project you're going to work on that isn't here, please share the inspiration on our Ravelry Julie Asselin Digital Trunk Show thread!

Anatolia

This soft fluffy mohair is perfect for those who want to add a touch of cozy elegance to their garments.  Because of the cobweb-fine nature of this yarn, most of the suggestions involve pairing it with another yarn, but it goes great on its own as well!  All pattern links will give you information on meterage needed on Ravelry.

Shawls


Sweaters

Ranunculus (doubled or paired with Fino, Nurtured Fine, or Leizu DK)
Love Note (held with Fino or Nurtured Fine)
Aubade (doubled, or held with Nurtured Fine).  This pattern is available in the latest Pom Pom magazine)
Susurrus (held double with Fino or Nurtured Fine).  This pattern is available in the latest Pom Pom magazine)

Nurtured Fine

Nurtured Fine comes in wonderful cones of just over 700m. With that kind of yardage, it is excellent for sweaters and larger shawls, and like Fino, pairs excellently when held double with a fluffier mohair yarn.
