Tristan Yarn: New Colors and a Free Pattern

The East Coast is staring down another big snow storm (go to your local yarn store and stock up on supplies!), but that isn’t stopping me dreaming of spring knitting projects.

KFITristancowl2Especially when we have such fabulous new yarns and designs to drool over!

This is the Tristan Infinity Cowl, which was designed exclusively for us by Nancy Nagel.

Add the Tristan Infinity Cowl to your Ravelry queue.

This beautiful lace and cable infinity cowl uses just two balls of our Knitting Fever brand Tristan yarn.

KFITristancowl1We introduced Tristan last spring to great acclaim, which wasn’t a great surprise. This Linen and Viscose blend yarn comes in generous 259 yard (100 gram) balls.

This year we are adding 10 beautiful tonal colors to the original 8 multicolored yarns.

This really opens up the range of projects you can make with this beautiful, warm weather yarn.

KFITristancowl4As you can see from the cowl pictures, the new solid colors of Tristan really show off textured stitches.

Tristan also has a nice bit of shine to it, for a little extra interest and glamor.

KFITristancowl5The Tristan Infinity Cowl, which would be good for intermediate to advanced knitters, can be worn many different ways. You can also adjust the size and look by changing your needle size.

If cables aren’t your thing, you can always knit the Tristan Eyelet Lace Shawl instead.

The Tristan Eyelet Lace Shawl is great for an advanced beginner, or an experienced knitter looking for an easy project.

With drape, shine, and the wonderful linen content, Tristan will make lovely summer tops, too.

I’m sure the staff at your local yarn store will be able to give you plenty of good ideas of how to use this beautiful new yarn.

You can also find inspiration from the projects using Tristan on Ravelry.
