SET OF SIX MINI-SKEINS INÉS

33

Ready-to-ship !

The set of these six mini-skeins dyed by hand on the merino linen base Inés has been the one that I used while testing the new AVENA Sweater designed by Jennifer Steingass.
However this fall colors set can be used for any other colorwork project. The shades nicely blend in a soft and bright gradient and will stand out beautifully on a beige, gray or dark main base like Bleu de Minuit or Bois Noir.

The set contains six mini-skeins on the INÉS  ( 90% single merino / 10% linen) :  6 x 20 grs / 73m ( 79 yds) approx. (438m / 479 yds in total).

Detail of the set:

  • 1 x Sienne Brûlée
  • 1 x Crimson
  • 1 x Red Earth
  • 1 x Rosa
  • 1x  Terre d’Ombre
  • 1 x Or Bronze

The colorwork of AVENA has been knitted in double thread.  Learn more on the detail of the project, the gradient and the color recommendations, as well as the yarn used as the main color, below in description.

The set contains enough yardage to knit the colorwork from size A to G. Please kindly doublecheck the quantities needed for the larger sizes to make sure that you will have enough yarn. If necessary, mini Inés are also available individually : mini-Inés.

Description

AVENA is the very new knit pattern designed by the talented Jennifer Steingass. Perfectly detailed and easy-to-follow, this circular yoke sweater takes a surprising twist with diagonal colorwork cascading down from the neckline. Enjoy simple, engaging, and meditative knitting as the branches swirl around the yoke as you work.
While testing the pattern, I used the Inés base in double thread for the colowork. You can find below the recommended color changes (but which can of course be modified at your convenience):

Row 1 to 9: Sienna Brûlée (double strand)
Row 10 to 14: Sienne Brûlée + Crimson (1 strand of each)
Row 15 to 20: Crimson (double strand)
Row 21 to 25: Crimson + Red Earth (1 strand each)
Row 26 to 29: Red Earth (double strand)
Row 30 to 37: Red Earth + Rosa (1 strand each)
Row 38 to 46: Rosa + Terre d’Ombre (1 strand of each)
Row 47 to 53: Terre d’Ombre + Or Bronze (1 strand of each)

  • NOTE: The INES yarn used double will also be suitable if you prefer a DK single yarn as the main color. My Avena has been knitted with Guilio DK + Stella yarn in Caffe Latte for a loose, generous and ultra soft sweater. For a more “fitted” sweater that closely matches the original sample, better choose a single DK yarn or a fingering + Stella duo.
