Valley Yarns on Ravelry Issue #6

Share Button

Inspired by Cara’s recent blog post Lace Boot Camp, I looked around and found some incredible lace projects on Ravelry in some of our Valley Yarns.

1. Shawl for Pelion knit by Chilicoco uses just a little more than 1/2 a cone of the Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk to make the Knitty free pattern Cold Mountain.

2. Spanish Moss knit by hlf in Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel makes a lovely shawl with great drape. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry from Designs by Romi.

3. Rosalind Shawl knit by Fyreball in Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk Hand Dyed has a stunning center cable strip that really stands out from the cable pattern. Amazing! The Sivia Harding pattern is also available as a Ravelry download.

4. Wedding Stole for Megan knit by sunfishknitter in Valley Yarns 10/2 Bamboo is a great example of what you can create with a yarn normally intended for weaving, making a delicate lace fabric perfect for an extra special event. Ann Hanson’s Twinings Stole is available as a Ravelry download too.

5. Birthday Marrowstone knit by knittinggolfer with just one skein of Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dyed, shows off the subtle variation you get with a kettle dye yarn. The Marrowstone Shawl is a Marcy Vandale design available for purchase on Ravelry.

6. Graphite Remember Me crocheted by CraftyCSW in Valley Yarns Huntington displays how sock yarn is not just for feet. Great pattern from LilyGo available on Ravelry.

7. Willow crocheted by herbivore100 in Valley Yarns 5/2 Valley Cotton is another good example of what else you can do with our weaving yarns.

8. Down by the Sea knit by donnabriz in Valley Yarns Colrain is a slightly heavy shawl than the others, but equally gorgeous with the oversized scallop edge detail. The Captiva Wrap pattern by Carol Feller is available for download on Ravelry.

    Oooh, gorgeous!  I love all of the first 4, and #6.  Those alone could keep me busy for quite a while, if I didn’t already have SABLE.

    I’m not quite sure which one I like the most. I’ve never done fine lace with cable too, so I might try #3 first.
