Our newest yarn, Lore, has been out for just over two months now and we are so pleased with the warm welcome you have given it.
One of our favourite things to do since Lore was released it to check Ravelry to see what you have been making with it so far. There are already lots of FOs to be inspired by!
In this blog post, we share six of our favourite projects made from Lore so far. We hope they inspire you to try Lore for yourself!
Six Beautiful Projects Knitted in The Fibre Co. Lore
Mr Rochester is a sweater designed by Alice Hammer in The Fibre Co. Lore. MarieColby knitted her sweater in the same colourway as the original: the very popular Happiness shade. It came out beautifully – we love how the yarn draws attention to the geometric gansey stitches throughout the sweater.
You might be familiar with Ambah O’Brien’s Mendia Hat pattern since it already has over 350 projects linked to it on Ravelry. Bobinettebleue substituted the suggested merino yarns for Lore in Earthy to great effect. Those twisted stitches have so much definition and dimension!
Ishbel is a shawl design by Ysolda Teague that features in her Whimsical Little Knits book. The pattern calls for a fingering weight yarn, however, Oneknitwit subbed in Lore with a larger needle size. One hank of Lore created a small, but lovely, shawl. The lace blocked out wonderfully!
The Guelder Rose Hat, designed by Inese Sang, looks glorious in Lore. All of that rich texture – cables, bobbles, lace – pops beautifully. Theowlmademedoit used less than a hank of Lore in Mystery, which is a very cool grey that can almost look blue in some light.
Daffodils is a newly released pattern by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne, which was originally designed in a hand-dyed yarn. Flobrode used Lore instead and gives the sweater a more rustic, classic look. We can imagine it becoming a real wardrobe staple this Winter!
As these lovely projects demonstrate, Lore is an extremely versatile yarn. Whether you’re knitting texture, colourwork or plain stockinette, Lore will create a beautiful, tactile piece of fabric that will be a pleasure to make and wear.
