AMORES Basta is a bulky-weight dream come true! The supersoft merino is dyed by Amor in Santa Fe, a true magician at the dyepot. We love the subtly shaded fall colorways that just beg to be knit (quickly, we might add!) into new wardrobe favorites.
We wanted a quick and on-trend pullover, and Ursa by Jacqueline Cieslak was an immediate pick! Knit with 8 skeins of Basta on size 10.5 needles, Loops Trooper Deborah finished her stunning pullover in no time flat! It fits like a dream and the color is amazing! Now we all want one! The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
And Loops Trooper Loretta chose the Tamitik hat by Shannon Cook for a fast fix winter hat. Knit with 2 skeins (including the pompom!) of Basta and size 8 & 10 needles, the stitch pattern really shines in this amazing fiber. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
