I'm not a very experienced knitter but I do enjoy making one or two skein garter stitch scarves for gifting. Last weekend at a church sale I bought three skeins of a Red Heart yarn called Boutique Magical. The colors were pretty and I liked the way it had different textures to it. Gracious, what a hoot it turned out to be. There were at least four or five separate weights/textures in each skein as well as fairly long color bands. I'm glad I decided to knit with it because I think crocheting would have made me tear out a few handfuls of hair.....lol. Has anyone used this yarn? Do you have suggestions for patterns, either crochet or knitting?
For those of you who don't know, at the recent STITCHES South event in Atlanta, Crochetville and Red Heart Yarns had a joint booth, with Crochetville selling yarn for Red Heart. The booth was an outstanding success, and we'll be repeating the effort at both Chain Link/Knit and Crochet show conferences this year as well as the STITCHES events. Since we're selling Red Heart yarns, I need to make a whole bunch of garments featuring those yarns to wear in the booth. I just finished making the Relaxed Cardi free pattern available from Red Heart: I finished it in only 4 days. You can click that link to download the pattern pdf or you can download directly from this thread as well: LW2357.pdf. (Thanks to Kathleen Sams of Red Heart for giving us permission to host the pattern in this thread.) I made my version in Red Heart Boutique Midnight yarn (6 skeins for size small) in colorway Serenade with a size H/8 (5mm) hook. Photos © Amy Shelton and Crochetville.
