Sometimes the yarn calls the pattern, and other times the pattern calls the yarn.
This beautiful purple bamboo called for an elegant pattern and was one of the first natural fibre yarns I fell in love with. So it was somewhat serendipitiously that this yarn was made by South African artisinal yarn dyer, I Love Yarn.
And this pattern? Oh my.
This lace, cable beanie is an easy pattern to remember with just enough going on to keep you on your toes while you knit.
The yarn itself has a beautiful drape that works so well with his pattern. I love bamboo and I Love Yarn‘s is especially gorgeous. Their palette is breath-taking and that’s why I also designed cabled squares for a baby blues blanket with it.
