Cumulus Giveaway!

December 19 2014 – thisisknit

We all seek comfort at this time of year... some people find it in steaming mugs of hot chocolate, others basking in the warm glow of a fire. But we know there's nothing better than snuggling up with a special yarn, especially one with the soft, fluffy halo of Baby Alpaca... Cumulus 2 Fyberspates Cumulus is new to our shelves, but it had been on our wish list for some time. Jacqui in particular had been plotting an Ellora Scarf since late summer! We'll be posting her FO as soon as it's off the needles, but in the meantime here's our top 5 pattern suggestions from Ravelry for this dreamy yarn. (c) Susanna IC 1. Cumulus This exquisite shawl from Susanna IC has to be top of the chart, with its dainty bead detailing and striking lace pattern. The beading is optional, but it does add a lovely drape to the finished shawl. (c) Louise Zass-Bangham 2. Winter Shadows Wrap Just as elegant, but much simpler in its execution, the Winter Shadows Wrap is a great example of using two complimentary yarns to great effect (in this case we would suggest combining Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply and Cumulus). The finish is subtle, but the resulting wrap would surely be a wardrobe staple for years to come... Ellora 3. Ellora The scarf is the result of a nifty combination of textured moss stitch and delicate cables. We love it in this icy shade and think it would make the perfect accessory for brisk winter walks. (c) Flickafish 4. Il Grande Favorito This project would be sheer indulgence, knitted with two strands of Cumulus held together. We love the modification made by Ravelry User FlickaFish to make the front in garter stitch (as photographed). Pure luxury. Seascape Stole 5. Seascape Stole Kieran Foley is one of our favourite designers here at TIK, and his Seascape Stole has always been a popular pattern. The simple, flowing stitch pattern would be stunning in one of the jewel tone shades of Cumulus. GIVEAWAY So that's our top 5, but we'd like to know which pattern is top of your list for this yarn. Let us know, and you just might be lucky enough to win the yarn and the pattern to make your dream project. Simply leave a comment below, stating the name of the pattern and the shade of Cumulus that you would knit it from. You can comment any time until the close of 2014 and we'll announce a lucky winner in the New Year.

    My favourite would be seascape. I love it. Any colour would be delicious

  • Maryl: September 16, 2020

    My favourite would be Down by Kim Hargreaves in Ruby red. I think I would do the ‘solid’ stripes in scrumptious 4ply if the reds were compatible………… Having viewed/stroked the yarn today I think this would be the ultimate in luxury garments.

  • Jaclyn Allen: September 16, 2020

    Being a huge Boo-Knits fan, I’d have to say Cumulus would look lovely in her Boo Humbug pattern in Magenta. Can’t go wrong with alpaca!

  • Linda Rumsey: September 16, 2020

    Such a beautiful yarn would make a simple sweater look gorgeous, so it would be Il Grande Favorito in shade Water for me please!

  • Myfanwy Humphreys: September 16, 2020

    I’d love to knit the winter shadows wrap in Plum Cumulus and Charcoal Scrumptious – beautiful!

  • Heather: September 16, 2020

    I would love to knit Sarah Hatton’s See through striped jumper. It is made of stripes of a single strand and I would knit the thicker stripes with two strands.
    It would be perfection the dark grey colourway.

  • Deirdre McKenna: September 16, 2020

    Oh the teal is just gorgeous, so it would have to be il grande favorito, sheer indulgence for me!

    Ive done winter shadows wrap and its gorgeous, so would also consider another in water as I have the scrumptious and it would make a lovely gift for someone special. I can recommend both the pattern and scrumptious so cant wait to get a feel of cumulus!

  • Catherine Rotte-Murray: September 16, 2020

    I would love to try a shawl with the sea green, the ones above are fab, seascapes or cumulus, but I would maybe try Photosynthesis or Glam Shells which would fit tha yarn equally well! Or even Haruni, which I haven’t done before! I’d agonise over choices but would love to have the opportunity to make that decision!

  • Fiona K: September 16, 2020

    I am always slightly terrified of lace-weight yarn – it tends to be beautiful, and rarely as fragile as it appears, but I am still nervous of it!! I will one day work up the courage to knit Bonny (TinCanKnits) which is gorgeous summer knitwear!! And I would think a perfect colour way would be Sea Green!

  • Terri Love: September 16, 2020

    I’m liking the seascape stole a lot. Not sure which colour I’d choose – perhaps bottle green?
