Berroco Loves Ravelers, Pt. 2

Screen shot 2011-08-02 at 11.06.10 AM

I’ve been at it again – browsing Ravelry and finding lots of projects designed with Berroco yarns! It’s time for another independent pattern round-up…

Robyn Gallimore’s Floraison, using Ultra Alpaca Fine

This two-color sock pattern is full of fun details. A floral design is contrasted with checkerboard patterning and Latvian braids, ensuring that you’ll never have a boring moment while working on these socks!

Thea Colman’s Egg Nog, using Ultra Alpaca

I loved the photo of this purple version test-knitted by Amy. The smocked stitch detailing is beautiful, and the shape of the sweater gives it loads of versatility. Ultra Alpaca’s softness and drape are a perfect match for it, and the wide range of colorways means the possibilities are endless…

Amy Meade’s 3S Shawl, using Berroco Sox

3S stands for super-wide and super simple (both appealing qualities), and this pattern also features some neat alternative options including eyelets and decorative bind-off choices. This shawl really shows off the beautiful colors of Sox.

Heidi Kirrmaier’s Harvest Moon, using Blackstone Tweed

This beautiful top-down cardigan is well-proportioned with a flattering fit. The wide textured neckband is echoed by the curved pockets. The soft Blackstone Tweed yarn perfectly complements this design’s simplicity.

It’s so inspiring to see these great designs – thanks to all the designers for choosing our yarns!

    I first found Berroco yarns when looking for a machine washable chunky yarn fora cabled sweater. Berroco Comfort Chunky fit the bill. And Berroco Comfort worsted weight was perfect for a cabled cardigan. Mica turned out to be exactly what I wanted for a lacy summer shrug. Then Comfort again for another cardigan. Though I consider other brands, I’m now hooked on Berroco! The wide range of weights, fibers and colors mean I always find what I’m looking for in one of your lines.

  2. I adore Berroco yarns and have designed several patterns using them. Newly released Fiddlehead Scarf (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fiddlehead-scarf-2) uses Vintage and the Marilyn Shawl (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/marilyn-shawl) uses Ultra Alpaca Light. I’m currently designing a crocheted wrap using Remix and will be releasing soon two patterns using Ultra Alpaca.

    I’m surprised that there were no crochet items using Berroco yarns.
