Amorette is a French girls name which means little love.
This scarf will wrap you up in a little bit of love.
♥ This FREE pattern is given to you with a little bit of my love. ♥
A little while ago one of the ladies who is a member of my Facebook group Helen’s Hookaholics asked me if I would try some of the yarn she makes.
Well you know me…..I love trying new yarns and jumped at the chance.
A fabulous package arrived, and I couldn’t wait to get started.
These very slow/gradual colour change cakes have been popular for a while, and I love the fabulous drape you get when making shawls with them. The first of this type of yarn I tried is from Wolltraum, the My Melody yarns from Switzerland.
The difference with the Mister Twister yarns, which are from German couple Sara and Stephan, is that they are twisted rather than just separate strands.
Sara and Stephan were the first to introduce the twisted yarns from their small home based business.
Sara manages all the online side of the business, including an English speaking group on Facebook called Mister Twister – English Community. By joining the group you can find out all about the yarn, see lots of gorgeous colour-ways, and beautiful finished projects.
I really enjoyed working with this yarn and found that the twist helps to make the yarn easier to work with.
The feel of the yarn is so soft and is perfect for shawls, scarves, wraps and blankets.
Amorette can be made with any yarn and hook size as the pattern repeat can be adapted and increased as desired.
Ineke used Stylecraft Special dk and controlled the colour changes she wanted, this makes a gorgeous warm scarf for those European winters.
You can read all about Ineke’s Amorette on her Ravelry project page.
Mellissa used Stenliyarn Souffle which is very similar to Mister Twister or Scheepjes Whirl, and as winter starts in the Northern hemisphere it is summer down under and Amorette becomes a beautiful lightweight shawl for evenings.
Read Mellissa’s notes on her Ravelry project page.
I even tried creating charts for the first time to help you, but this may be the last time I try making charts as videos are way quicker, well they are for me!
There is just one simple pdf pattern download which includes both US and UK terms in the same pdf.
