1. Gilmore Lake in Superwash Merino Worsted Twist
This knitted poncho designed by YellowCosmo is perfect for the changing seasons! It features a relaxed cowl neck and colourwork border, knitted from the top down. The pattern comes in sizes XS to 2XL, and we just love that it's made in Cloudborn's Superwash Merino! 100% merino wool, machine washable and in a range of soul-nurturing hues - what could be better!
2. Ella sweater in Cloudborn Fibers Pima Cotton DK
Ella is an easy-to-knit raglan sweater by designer Rita Maassen. Even beginners can get to grips with this top-down cotton sweater, yay! Knit in Cloudborn Prima Cotton DK and choose from a delicious range of shades - lush Granny Smith, pretty Coral, or earthy Thistle perhaps! The pattern comes in sizes XS to 3XL.
3. Beautiful Things Slouchy Hat in Superwash Merino Worsted Twist
This gorgeous crochet hat by KT and the Squid works up very quickly from the top down. Simple stitches create a pretty little texture made in Cloudborn's Superwash Merino. And if you’d like more of a slouch, you can easily make the hat longer!
4. Anguli Cowl in Cloudborn Highland Fingering
The Anguli Cowl is a fun and quick project that uses a small amount of Cloudborn Highland Fingering, perfect for gift knitting, and looks super stylish! The cowl is designed to mimic the look of an asymmetrical triangular shawl wrapped around the neck, but with no pesky ends to come untied. Knit flat in garter stitch with a simple stripe sequence, a series of increases and decreases forms the shape of this cowl, and one little seam up the back joins it together.
5. At the Shore Baby Blanket in Superwash Merino Worsted Twist
This simple crochet ripple pattern makes a bold statement without using increases or decreases. Choose three colours and carry yarn tails up the edges to minimize the number of ends to weave in. Cover the yarn tails with a decorative border. Made in Cloudborn's Superwash Merino, it's the perfect oh-so-soft yarn that's machine washable too!
6. Roving Summer Wrap in Cloudborn Prima Cotton DK
This gorgeous long cardi by Irene Lin is a wardrobe staple for every knitter! It's worked seamlessly from the top-down. And can be finished with a waist strap, placed through both armholes then tied to the front or back. Now, which shades to choose from Cloudborn Pima Cotton DK's earthy colour palette?
7. Dutrieu in Cloudborn Fibers Highland Superwash Sock
Named for a pioneering (and stylish) aviatrix, Dutrieu’s bold lines make the most of hand-painted sock yarn. Designed by Woolly Wormhead, the sideways garter-stitch construction is easy and fun to work. Short rows plus a widening brim result in unpredictable colour changes that add a note of adventure to this simple cloche. The sample is shown in Cloudborn Fibers Highland Superwash Sock Twist, in size 22in on model with 21.5in circumference head.
8. Aerial in Cloudborn Fibers Highland Superwash Sock Twist
Once you've made the Dutrieu hat, make a cute mini-me look, with this fun kids hat pattern. Aerial is a cute way to keep your little acrobats warm. The sample is shown in Cloudborn Fibers Highland Superwash Sock Twist, size 18in on a model with 18in circumference. Pattern includes illustrated tutorials for provisional cast-on and short rows, yay!
