Notes about the yarn:

This fingering weight 3-ply blend of 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon is a crocheters dream. It’s soft, it’s round. The yarn works well for texture, cables, granny squares, and lace. It’s not splitty. It creates delightful fabric. The yarn is available in 100, 25, and 50g skeins. The skeinette 5-packs provide options as do the 8-mini skein chains. Anzula’s delightful tonals sing on this base.

Notes about the swatch:

Worked up as a swatch for my design VLSI, it would be stunning pairing a 100g solid with a skeinette pack. However plaese know I’ve not done the math to see how the repeats would work up for this combination.

Notes about the yarn:

I believe this is YONY Brooklyn Bridge Worsted (100% SW Merino; 100g, 218yds/ 199m; 4 plies). It’s lovely and squishy.

Notes about the swatch:

The four plies make for a very round yarn which helps the twisted stitches to sing.
