Alpaca Allure

Sep10

I think sweater season is just around the corner- and knitters want luxury.  Our surprise best seller this week was Misti Alpaca Chunky.  We had several customers stop in with plans to make sweaters, and they decided that Misti Alpaca was the perfect blend of style, softness, and indulgence.

And I got inspired!  I am not a sweater maker (yet), but still wanted to use this yarn.  I found a pattern for a wrap/scarf/shawl that I thought would be perfect, the “High Line“.  (Pattern available in-store if anyone else gets the Misti bug!)  It calls for 4 skeins, yet makes a wrap big enough to keep me cozy.  It’s knit on 15’s, and I already have 2 chart repeats done.  Bonus: a quick knit!  It would also be a great “first lace” project.

I’m feeling like another trip to the local Alpaca farm is in order….
