Malabrigo’s amazing new yarn, Twist, has arrived at the shop and we were scouring the internet finding lots of great patterns to work with it. Twist is 8 plies of their laceweight yarn, very soft and lofty. It knits up to an aran or chunky gauge, although I suspect that you could get worsted gauge with it.
Some pattern ideas:
Rosamund’s Cardigan by Andrea Pomerantz

Mrs Darcy by Mary Weaver

I think this might be my “March” sweater…in my attempt to knit 12 sweaters in 12 months.
Hemlock Ring Blanket by Jared Flood
Materials: 600-900 yards of chunky weight yarn – Cascade 128 would also be amazing for this!

I actually have this on needles right now as a gift for a friend.
