SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
This listing is for two skeins of CHOCKA to make the MK#13 Cosy Stylish Scarf designed by Robyne of Minimal Knits. MK#13 would be a valuable asset to your knitted wardrobe. This is a super fun and quick knit - a great choice for the KAL.
CHOCKA is a 80/20 Corriedale/Silk DK that has the bounce and body to hold the shape of this design, while the silk lends sheen. Choose your colour and purchase your yarn here (I have loaded colourway recommendations for this pattern), then pop over to the pattern page HERE and purchase/download this wonderful pattern.
Like all Minimal Knits designed scarves, MK#13 drapes beautifully, can be worn in all sorts of ways and is quick to knit because it uses needles larger than is usual for the yarn. An 8ply/DK version of MK#5, this is an elongated boomerang shape with eyelet panels and edges knitted on the bias.
The colourways I am recommending for this have good tonal range or are hand painted/speckled which I think suit this design.
Poetic, rich colour on sumptuous non-superwash New Zealand yarns: Merino, Corriedale, Merino-Cross, Romney, from the grower to the mill to the dyer - connect your final object back to it’s origin & incorporate the story of the yarn into your own. This is our definition of luxury.
Yarn is the best. It makes the stores who sell it, and the people who buy it happy. It’s sustainable, and supports hard working people in smaller communities trying to slow things down while the world speeds up. All around it’s an amazing, natural product.
Prosper Yarn is small, local, ethical, and socially minded. We use New Zealand grown and milled yarn bases. We do not support mulesing. We use as little fresh water as possible, and fully exhaust our locally mixed professional acid dyes.
Prosper does not use Super Wash yarn bases.
