Over the past several weeks I’ve been sharing the yarns that I received from Adriafil Yarns to test out what they have to offer. All of these Italian yarns are lovely but I’ve saved the best for last (or at least the one that was my favorite): Mistero.
Mistero is a bulky yarn that is made up of 53% wool and 47% acrylic. It’s super soft and plush to the touch, making it lovely to work with.
As suggested by its name, Mistero yarn is “mysterious” because of its particular printing method. Each ball of this yarn is variegated to offer a self-patterning design ranging from tone-on-tone to true multi-color patterns.
There are 20 different available colorways. I worked with two of them – Forest Fancy and Tundra Fancy. Each is a lovely blend of different colors that work well together to create a final effect.
I chose to just work two pieces of square fabric with the two balls of Mistero that I had. I’m on this kick lately of making squares using different stitches. Later I’ll turn them into quilts or blankets or bags or something.
In this case, I decided to work tall stitches, because I love the way that the variegated pattern works up in the texture of the tall stitch.
I worked rows of double treble crochet stabilized with rows in between of hdc.
I really love the way it turned out. The yarn is thick but the stitches are still well-defined and the final fabric is terrific to touch.
