Gorgeous Bellissima

Have you tried making a project in Bellissima yet?  It really is the most sumptuous yarn, with it’s multi end construction that gives fantastic stitch definition for knitting and crochet.  The colour palette is rich and sophisticated, and the colours work brilliantly together if you are making a blanket or Fair Isle project.

We thought we would take a closer look at some of the patterns you might like to try in one of our favourite yarns.

How about pattern 9586 for a classic cardigan with a subtle texture.

Pattern 9584 has an interesting asymmetric hem.

Can’t decide which of the lovely colours to choose, then why not try this stripey cardigan and try your own colour combination with pattern 9581

Bellissima is also a great yarn for kids as you can see with this super cute cardi, pattern 9707.

This jumper, pattern 9708, really has it all with zingy colours and cables to boot, such a great knit.

Our Blogstars have really taken a shine to Bellissima.

Do you remember Jane Crowfoot’s Climbing Rose wrap in Bellissima, Bambino and Batik when it ran in Inside Crochet?  The good news is that this pattern is being re-released by Jane as a printed pattern or download in August so keep an eye on her website.

Helen Kurtz’s Good Striations blanket uses Bambino and Bellissima for its optical illusion effect using slipped stitches.

Helen Shrimpton launched her Lost Garden CAL in early 2019 - we just love the colours she has chosen

Sandra Paul designed the Nature’s Walk blanket in September 2019.  The colourway called Sweet Meadow uses Bellissima and Bambino.

We hope we have given you some inspiration to try out Bellissima so you can see for yourself what a wonderful yarn it is.
