As I was looking a some projects on Ravelry a week or more ago, I came across several that were using this unusual yarn. The yarn is called My Melodyy and it comes in lovely gradient colors that you can have caked light to dark or dark to light – your preference – and use multiple strands that are arranged to get the gradient look. It’s also “multiple wrapped” yarn which means it’s not twisted and plied and the separate strands all lay next to each other.
I ordered two different colors in two different yardage amounts – both of them have one metallic strand in them to add a bit of glitz. There’s a small charm tied on the end of the center pull strands.
Most of the projects I’ve seen using this yarn have been crocheted – don’t know if that means it’s difficult to knit with or since it’s a yarn I got from Sweden that crochet is more prevalent in certain areas or if the yarn company’s target audience is crocheters but I’m going to try knitting with it first and see what happens – once I decide what I want to make with it. The yarn itself doesn’t really seem expensive to me but shipping can be, so this was my splurge and not a yarn I’ll likely use after I use these two cakes, but I couldn’t resist since it looked so interesting.
My plan for the bottom cake is to make an Allira Shawl by Ambah.
