CHARLIE by Louise Robert Design | MERINO WORSTED hand-dyed Variegated yarn

This hand-dyed artisanal yarn is no ordinary knitting yarn: the designer behind the knitting patterns Louise Robert Design meticulously created this beautiful collection.

It's by studying the color pallets that represent her life and career over the years that designer Louise Robert was able to imagine all of the variety available in these hand-dyed artisanal yarns.

The color CHARLIE is a nod to the story of Charlie and the chocolate factory and its chocolate universe filled with magic and fabulous sweets. When I was little, I was very attached to the author Roal Dahl whose novels I devoured. In addition to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roal Dahl’s imagination has spawned several stories such as The Gremlins, James and the Giant Peach, Witches, Matilda. For me, Roal Dahl’s world is full of childhood memories that I still cherish today. - Louise

Ah-mazing YARN & COLOR

It was like “buttah”. Gliding effortlessly through my hands as yarnovers were made and loops were created. The colors surprised the eye with the different hues creating their own magic. This colorway was absolutely delightful to see in the product🧶

This Irish Girl is in love!

I originally purchased this yarn for another project but changed my mind, and I am so glad I did! I just finished the first of what will be two throw pillow covers to go with my white and blue living room furniture. Irish Girl is the perfect color and feel for the pillow. No knots anywhere in the two skeins I used. Some dye released in wet blocking before I seamed the sides, but color remained glorious! I am very pleased with this yarn!

Beautiful Yarn Makes a Cozy Cowl!

I found this yarn to be a light, soft, beautifully dyed worsted weight wool that was a pleasure to knit. I had planned to take it home after a month-long stay in Québec City, but I couldn't resist knitting something right away. As mid-October was a bit chilly for this California girl, I cast-on for a cowl I could use immediately. A simple K4, P1 pattern repeated in the round and a bit of Kitchener stitch to seam it together and I had an infinity cowl I wore right away. It's gorgeous, warm, and I love it. I will be ordering more of this yarn for future projects!
