Spotlight: Uluru Projects

Local yarn stores have been sending us great pictures of their Queensland Collection Uluru projects.

I thought I’d round them up to inspire you.

Monarch uluru pile

Uluru at Monarch Knitting

This beautiful pile of Uluru is at Monarch Knitting, a local yarn store in California.

Uluru is a 55% Cotton, 26% Acrylic, 19% Polyester blend. As you can see, it has a slight halo reminiscent of mohair. It is a great substitute for people who want the look of mohair, but don’t want an animal fiber.

Uluru has been wildly popular since it was introduced last summer. If you don’t want the halo, check out the new Queensland Collection yarn Kakadu.

The pattern is the Louisa: Lace Tunic  (Ravelry link) from French Girl Knits. Jackson St Fiber Arts used just two balls of Uluru for this project.

Peggy uluru scarf

Peggy’s Strangling Vine Scarf

Our Facebook fan Peggy sent us this picture of the beautiful scarf she knit for her cousin. The pattern is Strangling Vine Lace Scarf by Nicole Hides and is free on Ravelry.

Peggy said:

Here is the summer scarf I knitted in the Queensland collection yarn Uluru. The pattern is the “Strangling Vine Lace”. It was over 5Ft long, I made it for my cousin who lives in Texas and is taller then her. She loved it. This was my first time to knit a lace scarf in a light weight yarn. I was very happy with it and love the pattern.
