Project Focus: Fyberspates Cumulus

It's the third post of February and that means it's time to take a look at our favourite projects from Ravelry knitted in Fyberspates Cumulus!  

Let's start with some cosy cowls, perfect for snuggling up in on a cold winter day.  

 Narapoia's Resonate Cowl

Narapoia's Resonate Cowl

Narapoia and vpurl have both knitted Resonate by Louise Zass-Bangham, from her book Knit Play Colour but their two versions are very different (I love seeing projects like this that really show how you can take a pattern and make it your own and a small project like a cowl is a perfect opportunity to experiment).  

Narapoia's version (above) is knitted in #913/Slate and #902/Rust and we love the way the thin stripes of Rust really pop in this colour combination!  

vpurl's version (below) is no less beautiful, but uses a colour combination closer to the original pattern, but in different proportions.  She's used #905/Moonlight, #907/Magenta, 903/Bottle Green and #906/Turquoise.  I love the bold flash of Turquoise!

Next we have a gorgeous wrap by DraadjesenZo, Old Vine

I love the way this drapes and #903/Bottle green is the perfect colour for a botanical themed wrap!  DraadjesenZo is also has a yarn shop, Wolwinkel Draadjes & Zo in the Netherlands and is one of our lovely stockists.  

Another knit made by one of our stockists (Wereldwol, also in the Netherlands) is this stunning shawl, Dew drop by breimiek

Knitted in #911/Silver, this shawl really shows off the beautiful drape and ethereal quality that Cumulus has, especially when used in lace patterns and blocked well.  

The next project shows something we mentioned in our last post, how well Cumulus works when used with other yarns.  And what more beautiful example of that than dawn's Ocean Breeze shawl:

Using Cumulus in #900/Pillar box (I adore bright lace!) with a hand dyed silk blend yarn is so effective and the contrast of textures gives a very pretty effect.  The shiny beads look beautiful against the fluffy soft Cumulus too!  

Last but not least is this delicate shawl, the brilliantly named Flufforama by WelshSteph!  

Knitted from Anniken Allis's Twiss Crescent Shawl pattern in #909/Water, this delicate shawl could take you anywhere!  Steph said: 'It was like knitting kittens if that’s possible!' Thanks Steph!  

We hope you've enjoyed looking at these beautiful projects!  Thank you to all these lovely knittes for letting us use their photos.  

If you've knitted something in one of our yarns we'd love to see!  Show us your knits on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Ravelry!    

Happy Knitting!
