Something to Knit With Aran
20% off this bouncy aran-weight yarn in our New Year Sale! (Price shown includes reduction)
In a range of nine of our favourite shades, this thicker cousin of our Something to Knit With 4Ply is brilliant for textural knits and bold colourwork. The blend of highland wool from Peru, and superfine alpaca, creates a yarn that's springy to knit with and blocks to a soft but hard-wearing fabric.
The Totally Tubular Mittens (for learning the tubular cast-on method) require 2 x 50 skeins of this yarn, and the Peaks and Troughs Hat (for learning double-knitting) uses 1 x 50g skein each of 3 different colours. Both of these designs are found in Boost Your Knitting.
Whether you fancy a quick-to-knit hat, like Fabales or Concentricity by Woolly Wormhead; or a stunning colourwork sweater, such as Treysta or Telja by Jennifer Steingass; Something to Knit With Aran is the perfect choice. There is a bundle of suggested patterns for our new yarn over in our Ravelry group: Patterns for Something to Knit With Aran
