Buy this yarn – HERE*
This is my first time using my KnitPicks* Brava yarn that I bought eons ago during an email sale promo – gotta love some discount stash enhancement!
I chose this palette for kind of a coral + sea glass vibe with navy added in to throw the whole thing off (in a good way).
For curious crafters, here are these colors (front to back in the photo above):
Marina, Cornflower, Tranquility, Fig, Mint, White, Seashell, Coral, Solstice Heather (the navy)
When I got this yarn I was pretty sure it would be like all the other acrylic yarns out there. But it’s so much smoother! If you’re looking for great stitch definition, be sure to use a smaller hook because this yarn is flooooppppy 🙂 It’s very loosey-goosey. But this means the hand is so creamy soft it’s a great trade off.
How does it compare to some DK brands?
Since it is sport weight, you can see it’s a touch thinner than the DK, but I would use them all together. That’s just me! I’m a huge fan of mixing brands because it adds to the artsy feel and greatly expands color palette possibilities.
Very soon I’ll be putting a link and photo here of what I make with this gorgeous yarn! In the meantime, check out these patterns from KnitPicks:
