The Magnolia Handspun has come alive! Right before Thanksgiving, I posted some photos of the thick-and-thin spun yarn created by Camilla Emond, spinner and photographer at Bloom Fine Art in the wilderness of Montana.

Camilla asked me to create an exclusive pattern for this wonderful new yarn, which I was delighted to do!

During my trip to Aspen for the holiday, I experimented with this gorgeous yarn, and have come up with a simple lace pattern that shows off its texture and color palette to perfection.

I wanted to do lace, because I thought that the large holes created by faggoting stitch (the repetition YO and K2tog) would spread out and emphasize the stitches.

I was pleased to see that it also displayed the color-changes of the yarn really well. I came up with exactly what I wanted: a one-skein project for intermediate knitters that would show off the texture, color, and fiber mixture of the yarn to the best advantage. I hope you love it!
