I am excited to announce that our Yarn of the Month for September will be Bergere de France Magic+. Magic+ is an aran weight yarn composed of 50% combed wool and 50% acrylic. It knits to a tension of 16 stitches and 22 rows on 5.5mm needles and comes in 50g balls with 80m/ball. It is machine washable at 30 and it can also be tumble dried making it perfect for makes that get a lot of wear. There are 19 gorgeous colours across the whole rainbow spectrum.
It usually costs £4.20 but for the whole of September you can snap it up for over 15% off, at just £3.50 a ball.
If you are a regular visitor to the shop, you may have noticed this little chap guarding the door.
I followed the Heidi Bears pattern for Puff the Magic Stegosaurus but worked in Magic+ rather than the 4ply recommended. At around 1m long he certainly attracts plenty of attention!
Following the quirky crochet theme, I’m also loving this piece of false taxidermy from the Creations 14/15 pattern book. The perfect animal friendly way to tap into this current trend.Aran weight wool is also great for garments as it knits up reasonably quickly. The top on the left is from Bergere Magazine 164. which is their beginners pattern book and so would be a perfect introduction to garment knitting. If you’ve a little more experience, I love the cabled design on this sweater which is also from Creations 14/15.
Take advantage of this fabulous offer and come and choose your yarn in store.
