I’m so excited about the fabulous colors of my new yarn line in Louet Gems worsted!
I know your first question. What patterns can I use this yarn with?
What if I told you… thousands?!?
Here, let me show you the secret.
This is a worsted weight yarn, which means that it knits up to 5 sts per inch on a size 8.
It also means that you can use this yarn in nearly any pattern that calls for a worsted weight yarn! And because Gems is machine-washable, you know it’s going to wear great!
Let me show you how to search for patterns.
Go to www.ravelry.com and click the ‘Patterns’ tab and then click ‘Pattern Browser & Advanced Search’.
Now, scroll down and click the ‘worsted’ button under ‘weight’.
134,442 patterns? Whoa!
Now, feel free to click some more buttons. Only knitting? Do you have 4 skeins in your stash? Then click ‘650-750 yards’ under ‘yardage’.
The default sorting is most popular first, so you’re getting some great suggestions!
There’s no stopping you!
Now if we all just had some more time on our hands… I’m lucky to finish one project a month!
