Amitola Grande

This lovely merino wool - silk blend yarn is just like it's finer cousin, Amitola, but knits at a larger gauge of 4-4.5 sts/inch Like it's finer gauge Amitola, it also features a long repeat of color making it a great choice for the various cowls shown below. The Starburst Cowl is shown both on the right and wrong sides - both are lovely and interesting. For that cowl, I used about 90 yds of a solid color from my stash and 1/2 a ball of Amitola Grande. So with a 1 ball purchase, you can get 2 cowls from it and use up some stash! This pattern is sent free with the yarn purchase.

The third picture shown in the right side bar was knit using just 1/2 a skein of Amitola with 1 skein of a solid color (Moonshine by Juniper Moon) in a stitch pattern taken from a Barbara Walker Book called Florence Frieze (pattern available with the purchase) and the fourth cowl shown right is knit using almost a full skein of Amitola grande on its own - it is a Ravelry pattern called Copper Beaches Cowl.

Each 100 gm ball features 274 yards.

The cowl shown below I knit with just 2/3 of a skein - so make it wider or longer with 1 full skein!

Price: $24.99/sk.
