A whole rainbow of Scrumptiousness (thanks to our new shades)!

We've been busy working on lots of exciting new things here at Fyberspates HQ and we're very excited to launch seven new shades of Scrumptious 4ply!  

From rich Raspberry to bright Persimmon, cheerful Daffodil, juicy Key Lime, soothing Jade, intense Ultramarine and vivid Amethyst, our new additions to the range were developed with the help of the queen of rainbows herself, crochet designer Amanda Perkins.  

Our aim was to create a rainbow of glorious colour when these new shades are combined with our existing palette.... a bit like this!  Don't you just love a GIF?

Gorgeous new pattern alert! Essie by Ella Austin

We’ve got a fun new bit of news for you today, Kay and Ann from Mason Dixon Knitting are running a giveaway on their blog to win the yarn to make this gorgeous sweater, Essie by Ella Austin, knitted in Scrumptious 4ply.  

We're big fans of Ella's distinctive style and quirky colour work and this sweater is no exception.  Knitted top down in the round to keep finishing to a minimum and with a boxy, easy to wear shape the clean lines are pepped up with the addition of little contrasting popcorn stitches around the neck.  

Essie is part of Ella's new Colour and Line Collection, which is full of inspiring and fun to knit designs.  

We love this cute summer sweater, so if you feel the same you can check out the pattern here and enter the giveaway on the Mason Dixon Knitting site here.

Good luck :)
