Another new yarn has found a home here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop! Meet Lang Merino+ Color.
Merino+ Color is an aran weight superwash merino wool, smooth, springy, soft, and self-striping. It comes in nine different colorways, a nice variety. Some. are subdued and painterly, while others are playful and bright.
Each 100 gram ball boasts 197 yards, plenty for an adult-sized hat, pair of mitts, or small cowl.
I knit this modified version of Wendy Johnson’s free “Easy Broken Rib Cowl” with just one ball of Lang Merino+ Color, shortening the circumference by casting on fewer stitches than called for.
Come by the shop to try on the sample for size; if you’d like to make one like it, make a note to cast on 192 stitches. If you’d prefer the cozier, larger size shown in the pattern, pick up a second skein and follow the pattern as written.
Look for Merino+ Color in the aran weight section here at the shop. See you there!
