October 2018 Membership Crate Reveal

We know you’ve been waiting for the BIG REVEAL of this crate, and now it’s time! This month’s Membership Crate is gorgeous and perfectly suited to Fall. Members will receive two skeins of one color of our newest Audine Wools yarn: Halo DK

From left to right, the colors are Olive, Ash, Blush, and Mouse–all of them designed to be great accessory or garment yarns. This DK weight yarn is a blend of 50% Alpaca, 30% Merino, and 20% Nylon. The nylon content counteracts a little bit of Alpaca’s natural drape and slinkiness, giving this yarn a bouncy, soft hand with a slight halo you’re going to adore. Each skein has 236 yards so you’ve got a total of 472 to play with (and more, if you take advantage of the stock we’ll be adding to the shop later in the month)! The yarn is a two ply, and shows off soft, simple stitches beautifully, as evidenced in our two patterns for the month.

Crochet designer Breann Mauldin dreamed up Moss Boss, a clever double-layered, bandana-style cowl that will keep your neck toasty and your outfit on point. Shown here in Olive, we think it will be equally stunning in any of the colorways. The pattern is fairly easy, too, making it an accessible project for any crocheter.

Knitting designer Pearl Knitter (Clara) is from Spain, and created Huerta, a delicate, draping shawl that features elegant, leaf-like lace and a delicate border. You’ll love knitting lace large-scale with DK weight yarn–it works up quickly and is easy to follow, with both charted and written directions available to you within the pages of the magazine. 

Oh, we mentioned the magazine already, but now you know what yarn is featured in this stunning cover shot! Each shipment this month will include a copy, and you can also find a digital download version (follow the link in the issue’s Table of Contents) for those of you who prefer reading on an e-reader or tablet.

We can’t wait to see these shipments arrive and hear what you think of them! Be sure to join us in the Ravelry group for the dedicated Make-A-Long thread, and if you haven’t already signed up for October’s Membership Crate… what are you waiting for?!
