One of our new yarns, Berroco Mykonos™, is a little different from the rest. Mykonos is a core-spun yarn, which means it’s really two yarns, one wrapped around the other. The core of Mykonos is a super strong linen, which give this yarn its beautiful drape. The linen is covered in a wrapper of rayon which gives it the shimmery, slippery surface. Lovely to work with and to wear but how to weave in the ends?

The designer Julia Farwell-Clay has a great gift for clever knitting. Her work reflects her brilliant mind, with clever twists on traditional motifs and technique. All that said, what always gets me about her work is how she uses patterns. Julia’s Metronome, designed for Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, is a perfect example of what I mean.

The Astor Place Mitts pattern was just released by Kirsten Kapur as part of the Through The Loops 10th Anniversary Collection. The mitts were designed to make the most of the deliciously slubby, tweedy texture of Berroco Artisan, a worsted weight wool/silk blend workhorse yarn. From Kirsten: “I adored Artisan from the moment you put a skein of it in my hands…It worked up beautifully, and the tweedy texture gives the design a lot of extra surface interest.”
