Quechua

Our featured yarn this week is Berroco Quechua, a beautiful sport weight blend of merino, baby alpaca, and yak.  It's a lightweight fabric with a soft 2-ply construction that shows off your stitches without being heavy.  It would make a great Featherweight Cardigan, or a stunning shawl, such as Lockett. 

Designed especially for two colors of Quechua, Lockett features a fun shell pattern and mini tassels for a fresh, modern look.  Choose 3 skeins of the main color and one of the contrasting color. 

Quechua's 12-color palette is carefully coordinated, which means you can pretty much pick any 4 or 5 colors at random, and they'll look great together.  Take a look at Giedi, a cute hat worked in 4 colors of Quechua. 

It's Berroco's featured free pattern this week.  They've used a blue, rose, gold, and charcoal, and it looks amazing.  I think is would also be lovely in these three sort of neutral tones plus gold.  See what I mean? 

Giedi looks looks like complicated colorwork, but it's actually done with a simple slip stitch technique.  Download the pattern, and come choose your colors.  Quechua is on sale this week - use Code QUECHUA to save 20% through next Saturday, January 20th.
