There’s been a trend of late—patterns that pair a fuzzy laceweight yarn with a heavier yarn (anywhere from fingering to worsted, usually) for a fabric that is incredibly unique! Andra, one of our sales reps, tried out this tend by pairing one color of Berroco Providence™ with a few different colors of LANGYARNS Lace and the results were stunning.
Here’s a beautiful photo Andra took to give you an overview of the whole swatching panel she did. On the far right is the one strand of Berroco Providence in color 1106 Roger Williams. You can see how the color shifts when she added the different colors of LANGYARNS Lace!
After the plain swatch, Andra paired the yarn with the Charcoal #70 color of LANGYARNS Lace, followed by a light blue-gray color #23, then white #01, and coral #48.
Andra plans to pair one strand of Berroco Providence with one strand of LANGYARNS Lace to knit herself a Claverick from the new Berroco Providence pattern book. I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s finished, and Andra’s plan is making me consider knitting an Elmhurst with a color of Providence and a strand of Lace held together.
