The recommended yarn blog posts earlier in the year were really popular so it has encouraged me to keep it up as a regular series. Maybe three or four times a year I will check in and see what is new and designed in the yarns we sell.

The theme for the Recommended Yarn series is to look at what is new and knitted up in the yarns we stock. You can check out Recommended Yarn - Part one and Part Two with those links. My criteria for the first two was only to look at designs that had been published in the first 6 months of the year. So with all the following Recommended Yarn posts I shall look at designs that have been published since the last posts. The first two were published in July looking at the first six months of the year, so these next ones are looking at designs published from July to October. Again there are quite a few so I am splitting them over two posts. I used Ravelry for my pattern searches and all pattern links will go to the result on Ravelry. It has been a fun way of searching though the patterns by typing the yarn brand in the search field and organising the results by publication date. Let's see what I found.

Duo Skein Stunner by Tiina Huhtaniemi. This free pattern is perfect for beginners and a great excuse to choose two of your favourite colours to knit together. A triangle shape that is given length by knitting German short rows. What's great is it just uses one skein of each colour. Shown here in the Syringa and Manna.

Tukuwool DK is a 100% Finish wool blend of Finnsheep/Texel breeds creating a crisp and woolly yarn.

Baseline Cardigan by Susanne Sommer. I had to include another design in Tukuwool DK as it looks so cosy and perfect for autumn. Susanne Sommer has used Tukuwool amongst other yarns to knit this colour block version of her baseline cardigan. Knit sideways using modular construction this cardigan is fully customisable. Neckline shape, circumference and length can all be changed to suit your preferred style.

Textured stitches and lace make up the design with art deco inspired diamonds and graphic overlapping lines. Choose six colours to fade together or just choose six of your favourite.

Mosaic Mood by Cheryl Faust. This rich mosaic knit triangle shawl is alive with pattern. Created using three colours and only one colour is worked per row. Knit from the top down and increasing to the widest edge. We loved this design so much we created yarn kits.

The Fibre Co. Amble is made from easy wash merino and alpaca with the edition of recycled nylon making it a great choice for super soft socks or garments that need to be a bit more hard wearing.
