As soon as I saw Flette from Woolfolk, I fell in love! This yarn’s texture is so unique, I know many might find it intimidating to start a project with a yarn with such an unusual texture, so I jumped at the chance to knit a shop sample.
Immediately I knew that I wanted a hat pattern, and one that was either all or mostly stockinette. I came across several that I thought would work nicely with Flette, and finally settled on Felicity by Wanett Clyde. This simple pattern was a perfect match, although I did make a few small changes so that I wouldn’t run out of yarn.
For this project, I cast on 90 stitches and worked with the same size needles as the pattern states. I ended up with a delightful teddy bear-like fabric, and everyone in the store loves squishing it. When it came to the increases, I only went up to 110 stitches, knit two rounds, and then began the decreases. Initially I tried doing all of the increases, but I just wasn’t going to have enough yarn. I do want to note that I ripped out my knitting twice while trying to get the right length, and Flette held up wonderfully to my mistreatment.
I wish there were some way you all could just reach through your screen to touch this yarn! Woolfolk takes pride in their 17.5 micron Merino fibers, and I can see why. Flette was incredible to work with, and I’m definitely planning on purchasing a skein of my own to knit another Felicity for myself! I think a small cowl would be great for Flette as well!
If you have knit with any Woolfolk yarn, I would love to see your projects in the comments below. I loved working with Flette so much that I may even pick a random commenter and send them a skein!
