What can you do with only 100g of yarn?
I went over it a little bit in my last post, where I linked to my 100 gram Legwarmer pattern, but I’m sort of obsessed right now with seeing what can be made from a single hank of hand dyed yarn. Never again will we be stuck with the conundrum of “I have the most beautiful luxury yarn, but what can I even make with it?” (And, we don’t have to settle for just hats anymore!) Hopefully by the end of the year, I’ll have a full book of these patterns. But for now I’m releasing them one at a time, for $2 each.
So pattern number two of this “100g of yarn” series is another pattern for DK yarn. DK, also known as Weight 3 or Garment Weight, is my current favorite weight of yarn for its ability to look as elegant as a light weight yarn, while offering the convenience of worsted weight.
What I also love about this pattern is that it uses a variation of the Puff stitch, which has a smooth and natural feeling. It’s incredibly soft, and it displays the yarn just like it would look in the hank! I love this pattern specifically for speckled yarns, but variegated or tonal colorways (those things which can be so hard to find patterns for) would also work perfectly. I love the idea of giving this pattern as a gift along with one hank of luxury yarn, or giving the whole set as a gift (if my Facebook friends are anything to go by, people are dying to have a piece of this cuteness in their lives).
I never knew how much I needed my wrist warmers to match my coffee sleeve, but I don’t think I can ever go back to not matching my beverages again!
