Five Free Patterns for Fresco!

Posted on

This week I put together a collection of free patterns for you, and they all use the soft and versatile 60% wool, 30% baby alpaca, 10% angora blend Fresco

     This soft sport weight yarn has incredible stitch definition and a subtle angora halo that opens up as you handle it. Each skein of Fresco has 164 yards for only $12- so your projects are bound to be touchable, lovely, and affordable! The truest challenge will be choosing a favorite color out of the almost 30 options...

Use the coupon code FRESCO20 by 8/31/17 to receive 20% off of Fresco, making the price only $9.60 per skein!

Garter Cable Wristlets

1 skein of Fresco, $12.00 (or $9.60 with code)

     These cute fingerless mitts are worked flat and then seamed up the side leaving a hole for your thumb, which means there's no fuss over a thumb gusset and the mitts will fit either hand! If you're familiar with knitting cables and reading simple stitch charts, you'll have no problem working through this design. View Pattern or Shop Fresco.

Basket Whip Cowl

2 skeins of Fresco, $24.00 (or $19.20 with code)

     The Basket Whip Cowl really shows off how lofty Fresco can be. Since it's knitted on oversized needles, the angora halo blooms and the baby alpaca adds drape and softness to the warm wool. The stitch pattern is not overly complicated, but still adds a unique eye-catching texture. I love how the cowl sits around the neck, but it's also long enough to be pulled up over your head as a snood. View Pattern or Shop Fresco

Fresco Slouchy Hat

2 skeins of Fresco, $24.00 (or $19.20 with code)

     The Fresco Slouchy Hat is simple simple simple! Written for 3 different sizes, this easy-peasy pattern is mostly stockinette stitch with just a few rows of ribbing around the brim to keep it fitted on your head. It's a quick to knit unisex accessory anyone would appreciate year-round! View Pattern or Shop Fresco

Snowdrop Scarf

2 skeins of Fresco, $24.00 (or $19.20 with code)

     The Snowdrop Scarf is another 2 skein project using Fresco, but you could easily lengthen the design with an extra skein or two. This lace pattern is not super complicated as far as lace goes- but experience with basic lace techniques such as YO, ssk, and K2tog will be very helpful. Since the pattern provides both written and charted instructions- you can follow your preference! View Pattern or Shop Fresco

Eyelet Circles Shawl

8 skeins of Fresco, $96.00 (or $76.80 with code)

     I wanted to include a larger sized project amongst these quick-knit 1 or 2 skein designs, and this Eyelet Circles Shawl is a stunner! Again, the instructions are both written and charted so any intermediate knitter will be able to work through it. The stitch pattern is a more subtle lace design compared to the Snowdrop Scarf, but it does create a fantastic texture that proves Fresco's beautiful stitch definition! View Pattern or Shop Fresco
