Regal Purple

I knew straight away that I had to design in this regal purple, which is slightly darker in real life, and could not wait to receive it. It is another divine mercerized cotton called Perle 12/6 (yes – it does means pearl) from Hifa, another old favorite I used years ago in a cardigan that looks new even today, it comes on a handy 200 g/7 oz cone with 670 m/732 yds of 100% mercerized cotton with a pearl twist, which gives the yarn an extra color richness and a superb stitch definition. I am using a 3 mm/US 2.5 and have found a stitch pattern that captures the color, see below! My initial idea is to make a lace jacket with a short sleeve with a slight A-line shape, but we will see if the design agrees! I will keep you posted. There are so many divine colors so I am bound to come back for more; see ull.

  1. It is a beautiful colour and pattern. I am looking forward to see the finished design. I guess it is becoming another thing on my to do list 🙂
