AMORES Pilar from the dye studio of Amor in Sante Fe has everything you could want in a dk yarn--a delightful superwash base with a touch of cashmere for added softness and a hint of nylon for added strength and stability. And the subtly saturated colors are eye candy that beg to jump on your needles!
Loops Trooper Kate gave her cable skills a workout with the stunning Reversible Rib Cable Scarf by Barry Klein. Pilar was a perfect choice for keeping that squishy soft factor without sacrificing the structure of the cables. You'll need 5 skeins of Pilar and size 7 needles. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
And we couldn't resist giving the Dyea hat by Caitlin Hunter a go! It's easy-to-memorize pattern repeat made it fun and quick to knit on size 4 & 6 needles. Loops Trooper Debbie was able to get 2 hats out of 1 skein each of 3 colors. Woohoo! The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
