mai troppo is the third of five patterns in the Tuvstarr Collection which celebrates the return of one of my favourite yarns, Faery Wings from Fyberspates along with the continuous beauty of its sibling, Curly Silk from Dibadu. Add the magical colours of DyeForYarn’s MoFluff and you have countless combinations to play with.

Five patterns are released on random days this week (18–23 December).

Note If you buy a single pattern from the collection and change your mind and wish to buy the collection, one pattern can later be applied toward the Collection and is deducted automatically.

mai troppo is the bigger, faster-moving sister of lace-weight non troppo. mai troppo features the same easy-to-knit alternating stripes in stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch and a pleasing asymmetry for funky elegance. The cast on is a little different, and the striping sequence toward the end is, too. You are invited to make up your own stripes and throw in a remnant contrasting stripe here or there as you wish. The palette of Faery Wings, Curly Silk and MoFluff is vast and if you’re knitting one or more of the patterns in the Tuvstarr Collection, you will likely find many opportunities to use a remnant from one in another.

The knitting begins with the simplest cast on ever, the Winding Provisional Cast On that is stretchily bound off immediately. If you prefer you may use a conventional cast on of your choice just as long as it has some give.
For inspiration, questions, and maybe showing off your yarn choices, you are most welcome to visit the Tuvstarr Collection thread in the Åsa Tricosa Group.
