New Patterns and More on the Way!

New Lanas Puras Melosa Patterns- now available by download. These patterns are currently exclusive to One Planet Yarn and Fiber.

We have two exciting new patterns to release this week, both shown in our beautiful hand painted Lanas Puras Melosa yarn.

We are thrilled to introduce the second of our new felting patterns, the "Soothe Yourself Spa Set," designed by the very talented Sara Lucas. Sara is the founder of the Yarn of the Month Club and has designed many patterns, including the lovely Milanese Lace Glove pattern for One Planet Yarn and Fiber. Sara is also the author of several knitting books, including a new one releasing soon called "Baby Knits Kit: Instructions and Tools for 20 Snuggly Projects" The "Soothe Yourself Spa Set" pattern is an advanced beginner pattern which uses two contrasting colors of Lanas Puras Melosa fingering weight yarn to creat a neck roll and a matching eye pillow. After knitting and felting, the neck roll is fit over a pillow form and the eye pillow is stuffed with your choice of filling. We recommend including some relaxing lavender to bring a little "Zen" into your life! What a wonderful way to treat yourself or that someone special in your life!

We are also happy to introduce a fabulous new sock pattern designed by Lucia Tedesco, the "Lacy Mock Cable Socks." Lucia was born and raised in Roma, Italy. Her mom taught her how to knit during a very rainy vacation on the Dolomites when she was fourteen years old and she has hardly put her needles down ever since. She now lives in the Silicon Valley with her husband who makes her espresso in the morning, her two children, Principessa and Paperino, and her knitting that she still calls "maglia." You can read all about her knitting adventures on her blog.

These lacy socks are an easy to knit, intermediate level pattern which have the look of cables, but are knit with yarn overs and decreases. The socks feature gusset increases, a slipped stitch heel flap, and a round heel and are knit, suprisingly from the toe-up. The pattern uses just one skein of Lanas Puras Melosa, fingering weight yarn. The colorway shown is Fantasy, but these socks would be beautiful in any of our many colorways of Lanas Puras Melosa.

Watch this space for more new patterns coming soon to One Planet Yarn and Fiber!

Ooo, pretty.

I thought you might like to know that I used the Lanas Puras Melosa fingering weight yarn (in Mountain Sky) to make a Clapotis. You can read about it here.
