We already have the slow food movement. Let us introduce you to the slow knit and crochet movement. A very odd comparison. We think not. A quick google search on the definition of 2 ply, confirmed that it is a very thin yarn that lends itself to fine cobweb knitting or crochet. Historically, we have visions of Shetland shawls passing through wedding rings. Babies wrapped in shawls, crafted patiently by great aunts from mother countries far and wide. Words like, tradition, unhurried and simple pleasures come to mind when creating with 2 ply yarn, minus the calories.
Come into any of our stores and enjoy the journey with our free crochet Silver Fox Scarf pattern in Morris and Sons Maya 2 ply lace weight 100% baby Alpaca Yarn
The new Rowan No 55 has arrived in store as well. Fortuitously it has some darling 2 ply patterns in it. We have a favourite on page 75. Come and see…….
The beautiful Slovenia on page 75 is free to download when you register on the knitrowan website. We have pulled out the colours from our 2 ply alpaca range.
So, before you embark on that heirloom baby shawl put your toe in the water by trying smaller projects and fall in love with the joy that is working in 2 ply.
