Petite Boucle Yarn + Free Pattern!
Hello Noble Knitters! It's Donna and I'm the Knitting Doctor here at NobleKnits. Today I'm going to be sharing a very fun project with you made with Knit One Crochet Too Petite Boucle. If you click here, you'll be able to see this product.
So, here's what's special about this. This cowl is made using Petite Boucle (again, by Knit One Crochet Too). It is a two ball knitting project done in contrasting shades. This is a very, very soft cowl. It is going to knit up in no time. I'm on a size US 11 needle and there is nothing you need to do but knit with this.
I think this is the perfect size to stick under a jacket. You could wear it by itself with maybe a long sleeved tee. We're going to get to the colors in a minute and you'll be able to see what you can put together here. I'm going to take it off so you can see how it stretches and how soft and cuddly this is. This was made by our YarnGirl Linda F. and I'm going to have to promise to give this one back to her...I think it's going to be a tug of war.
Let me tell you about the yarn now. It is Petite Boucle and it comes in 6 colors. There's the pale blue and the white as in our project. There is a baby pink that I also think would be really delicate with the white. A periwinkle blue and a deeper pink shade which is called carnation and then we have a color called maize. It's a yellow with a little bit of greenish undertones, it's a really interesting shade. I sort of think I like this together with the blue. But, of course, the choice is going to be up to you.
It is composed of 58% nylon, 20% kid mohair, and the balance of this is going to be merino wool. So this is going to be a really nice, easy, wearable, cuddly cowl.
I want to mention a little bit about the yarn construction too. It's a little bit different and it shows you how we get the boucle element. So if you take a look at this, you'll see that the nylon actually forms the base of this fiber. The mohair and the merino is actually looped onto these nylon threads or treads in an "s" shape. So that's going to give you the little bumps and curves in this yarn.
Because it is on this nylon base, you want to make sure that you cast on and bind off loosely so you don't have a really tight edge. You won't have a lot of give in the yarn. Again, it makes a really great two-ball project. Wait until you hear the price point on this! You're actually going to come in at under $10 for one cowl. I think that's an incredible deal and an incredible project.
I am going to go sign off now and I am going to go and grab my Petite Boucle yarn and start working a couple of these up. So, it is Donna the Knitting Doctor at Noble Knits.
