Oh Capra, my Capra. Your loveliness far exceeds your Merino/Cashmere fiber content. You provide both a plethora of gem toned colors as well as creamy neutrals. While I’ll miss you when you go, I hold hope in my heart that I may see you again one day. *wink*
Enough of the mushy stuff. Let’s talk about what we’re going to do with all this delicious Capra that is on sale! I’ve cherry picked my top 3 wishlist patterns that would be perfect for this yarn. And here they are!
Not gonna lie. This pattern has been printed and filed away in my project queue for almost 6 months now. Thanks to it’s understated yet timeless appeal, I know I could make this 5 years from now and still love it. It’s one of those staple pieces that I want to make in at least 2 colors, Shoal and Black.
I am straight up gaga for knitting shawls. For whatever reason it is the project I tend to gravitate to the most, having started 3 different projects in the last 3 months. One is finished while the other two are still on the needles, but who’s counting right? What I love about the Kearsage is the subtle alpine-like detail. I am nowhere near being ready to delve into intricate lace patterns, but feel fairly confident I could make this pattern mine. My color of choice for this piece would be similar to the original pictured: Turmeric.
Twisted Rib Hat
It may be only be the beginning of summer, but this gal is already dreaming of layering season. Hats are one of those accessories that in my case, you can never have too many of. I love the simple structure and lack of fussiness with this pattern and appreciate that the pattern allows for a range of sizes to be made. You can bet there will some matching hat action in my house this winter. One in Urchin for the kiddo, one in Caviar for the hubby, and one in Hunter for me.
What super soft garment will YOU make with Capra?
