I was bopping about Ravelry last night, wondering how many knitters were using Berroco yarn to knit patterns from my fall booklet. We hesitate to harp on it, but, after all, selling yarn is what my job is all about. I am very happy to report that I found some truly outstanding work. Y’all make me proud ! 🙂
Batilou’s strawberrry hill is knit in Palace, the yarn called for. I love seeing how the piece works with her modern tailored style! Long sleeves were substituted for the original 3/4 sleeves and the color is quite altered. On her blog, she aptly calls her version “Granny Smith Hill”.
LaurenLoves2knit made her Loppem in Palace also, choosing a color that changes the mood completely. She added a few inches to the length to suit her long frame. (I know it’s unusual, but our model, Eleanor is only 5’2″)
Last up, but certainly not least, TsunamiTattoo used Pure Merino Heather in place of Inca Gold for her Eastlake. This yarn is a bit of an underdog, since the solids sell so much better, but I LOVE IT. The change of color is very subtle and it has a slightly dry hand, making it great for men’s wear too.
Congratulations on your fantastic work!
