A Collaboration Project Between Anzula and Stitch Sprouts

A bunch of us, Stitch Sprout Designers, have been secretly working on a collaboration project between Anzula and Stitch Sprouts. And now it's finally time to reveal the project. Stitch Sprouts has released 3 pattern booklets that feature 3 of Anzula's most popular yarn lines: For Better or Worsted, Squishy and Cricket. These pattern booklets are now available to order in print for wholesale through Stitch Sprouts. And they are also available via Ravelry, and the Ravelry in-store program! Each booklet features 5 beautiful patterns for just $18 (suggested retail).

You can read more about it from Stitch Sprouts blog post about the booklets, and also from Anzula's blog post.

I was very excited to be one of the designers contributing to the booklets.
For the Squishy Booklet, I designed the Ginto Shawl using 2 skeins of Squishy in the colorway Saffron. It features a Faroese-style center panel for the spine of the shawl and lace rib for the body of the shawl, ending with a picot bind off. Although it is a large shawl, it can be easily sized down or up. The modification is noted in the Notes section of the pattern.

For the For Better or Worsted Booklet, I designed the Tekstur Hat and Tekstur Cowl. Each project takes 1 skein of yarn. Perfect for beginning knitters looking for something other than the knit stitch. It's simple but has an interesting stitch pattern which creates a beautiful textured knit fabric.
