4 Seasons – Marvel rib scarf

While the sales are on I decided to pick up a few balls of 4 Seasons Marvel 12 ply yarn to give it a whirl.

The colour range in the shop I visited was limited in comparison to the other weights of Marvel yarn but I chose this mustard yellow colour to make an acrylic scarf.

I normally use wool and natural fibres for winter scarves but I want to experiment with yarns that can be used by people who have allergies or reactions to wool.

The weight of the 12 ply doesn’t feel as thick as a wool 12 ply, and I want to make a chunky scarf, so I’m knitting this scarf in a basic rib pattern with two yarns at a time and 9mm straight needles.

So far so good!

Knitted socks with Lincraft Splendour yarn

Knitted socks being worn

I couldn’t wait to try knitting socks again. Rather than chase thinner sock needles, I found thicker yarn and stuck with my 3.25mm needles.

I found this Lincraft Splendour yarn (50% wool/50% acrylic, 50g ball approx. 135m) which suggested 5.5mm needles so it seemed like a good option and I was hoping for an interesting pattern.

Moda Vera rebrand as 4 Seasons

I noticed that Spotlight had a lot of new yarns in with the name “4 Seasons”. I’d never heard of it before but as I poked around the aisles I got the sense that it’s a rebranding of Spotlight staple “Moda Vera”. I haven’t had this confirmed but there are similarities in yarn line names and colours, and the 4 Seasons labels say “Made for Spotlight Pty. Ltd”.
