October 2013 Yarn of the Month: Merino 120

by Craig on October 6, 2013

Lang Merino 120 Yarn

Lang’s Merino 120 is a versatile DK-weight yarn that comes in a range of beautiful colors. It’s made from 100% merino wool, which is wonderfully soft and bouncy. Merino 120 is also machine washable, which means you can use it for babies and kids and not have to worry about hand washing.

As our yarn of the month, Merino 120 is 10% off the regular price through 10/31/13. Here are a few projects you can knit with it.

FOR KIDS

Cabled Teddy Hat Cabled Teddy Hat by Marinda Lariz. Those ears! Although you could leave them off if you wanted to.

Fat Kitty Fat Kitty by Justine Turner; sized for ages 1 to 10. A love the simple shape of this fat cat and it’s a fun way to try intarsia.

Magical Magical by Elena Nodel; sized for ages 6 months to 14 years. This sweater has a lot of elements that I like – garter collar, ribbed sleeves, cable motif at neck – and that really work well together.

Spring Garden Tee Spring Garden Tee by Alana Dakos; sized for 3 months to girls 14. Alana’s designs are always so pretty and this is no exception.

FOR ADULTS

Best BoyBest Boy by Drowsy Knitter. This is a great hat for guys and only takes two balls. Would make a great holiday gift.

Calligraphy CardiganCalligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. Eventually I’m going to knit this cardigan for the shop. I always come back to it; it just looks so comfortable.

Easy Folded PonchoEasy Folded Poncho. Poncho’s are showing up everywhere this year, and this one is so easy to knit.

Gnarled Oak CardiganGnarled Oak Cardigan by Alana Dakos. Again, Alana’s designs are so soft and beautiful.

MustikkaMustikka by Suvi Simola. What a great cable! And with only one, it really makes a statement.

Scallop Lace HatScallop Lace Hat by Leah Coccari Swift. The eyelets add so much interest to this hat, but it’s still simple.

Merino 120 is new to us this Fall. It’s so comfy and versatile, I think you’ll come back to it again and again.
