Yarn Vibes – a Taste of Ireland

July 10, 2019

I want to introduce you to 3 crochet patterns I designed last year with Yarn Vibes. I was very excited when they reached out to collaborate with me last year, especially when I saw the beautiful quality of the yarn, in traditional and modern colourways. These colours were the inspiration for my designs – and my love for the beauty and heritage of Ireland. My family roots are in the Comeragh Mountains, Co. Waterford, and it is there that I always feel at peace, among the wild, ever changing landscape. I wanted the designs to be modern and relaxing to crochet, with visual interest provided by bold striping in the designs.

Some Information about Yarn Vibes Yarn – Yarn Vibes is an authentically Irish knitting yarn, made from 100% Mixed Mountain fleece, locally sourced from Irish sheep. All of the yarn in their collections is hand-dyed. They handle the wool with the greatest care, and keep their methods traditional and processes as simple as possible to ensure the essence of the Irish wool is kept as close to nature as they can.

Just like the sheep this wool is sourced from, every hank is slightly different. Even wool dyed in the same colour family will have stronger and lighter hues of the shade coming through. They are truly all one of a kind!
