Since the launch of my new banana and Tencel yarns at Aberdeen Yarn Fest earlier this year I have been asked for ideas of what to use the yarn for. And as I always try to keep my lovely customers happy I have created 2 new knitting patterns, one for each yarn, to inspire you!
First up is “Lovers Lattice” knitted in the gorgeous banana yarn:
Beatifully soft and delightfully drapey, this simple yet elegant shawl is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. It can be worn draped over the shoulders as a traditional triangular shawl, or bunched up and worn as a light but chunky feeling scarf, making it suitable for year round wear.
Designed as a perfect project to accompany Flora Fibres’ banana yarn, this pattern is suitable for all skill levels from confident beginner onwards. The banana yarn creates a wonderfully lightweight fabric with a lovely touch of interest from the slight boucle effect. And as it only uses 80g of yarn, you will still have some left over from a single skein to allow you to create something else fabulous!
The pattern only requires you to know a few basic stitches (k2t, ssk and yo), as well as knit and purl, all of which are explained in the pattern.
I am offering the pattern as a free download to inspire you with your knitting, in return all I ask is that you tag me on social media if you share photos – I love to see my yarn in action! Get your copy here:
