Louet North America Spring 2014

You may have already seen the Louet North America Spring 2014 collection. It debuted with a bang with four patterns in the first page of ‘Hot Right Now’ on Ravelry the first day. We’re thrilled to have this beautiful collections of patterns for Spring and Summer 2014 from such a talented group of designers.

This collection includes patterns for Louet GEMS Fingering and Sport, and Louet Euroflax Lace and Sport. Find each of these patterns online through Ravelry, or visit your local yarn store to buy a print copy.

Blaeberry by Susanna IC has two options, the larger shawl option pictured above is knit with one cone of Louet Euroflax Lace shown in Terra Cotta. If you love the lace but would like a smaller project knit the scarf version (both are included in the pattern) which is worked with two skeins of GEMS Fingering shown in Linen.

We hope you’ll enjoy this collection as much as we do. All the pattern names are after North American rivers, and all of these photos were taken on the Charles in Boston, MA. Although it looks warm and summery in these photos it was November when we shot them, and a balmy 40 degrees with plenty of wind! Here’s a photo of Mari, helping the model to get everything in place. So even if it’s cold where you are, it’s never to early to start planning for spring and summer!
