With its brushed handle and one-of-a-kind palette Melted Baby Suri is guaranteed to give any project the wow factor we love so much in our me-made clothing. Knit it by itself and you’ll end up with a very soft and light fabric with a beautiful boucle finish. But if knitting a whole jumper in Melted Baby Suri is not your style there are a lot of ways you can incorporate it into a pattern to add accent of colours and texture to your final piece. To show you how-to we’ve gathered a bunch of Melted Baby Suri projects knitted by fellow Ravelry users.
First and maybe the most obvious option is to use it as a contrasting colour in a stranded, an intarsia or a stripy pattern. In this version of the Sipila Sweater by Sunray Knits, Melted Baby Suri is the vibrant neon green. Not only it brings a contrast of colour but it adds some interesting texture effect too. In the same vein we have this Xtina Crop by Dank Fibre.
Another pretty example with this two-tone Pink Velvet by Jihannajjar. Here the fluff really stands out against the smooth Skinny Singles.
This Majestic Moutain by Hiramepo really shows you what great result you can achieve by combining yarns of very different handle on one piece of fabric. Singles, brushed, smooth, 4ply, DK; there really is a bit of everything is this jumper. Note how the diamond stripes on the yoke shine like pieces of jewellery. A great project to use up some leftovers from your stash.
Saraneedsanap also went all out with her version of the As If Tee. Some lace, some aran, some sock yarn and two shades of Melted Baby Suri. The result feels very joyous and fun. The lace panel gives an interesting contrast to the bulkier body and cuffs.
Melted Baby Suri really lends itself well to brioche. Although it knits up as a heavy 4ply it can be adapted to a wide range of different gauges and needles sizes. For example in their Syncopated Brioche Hat and Briyoke, Blinkie and MereteKDesign mixed it with some 4ply while in her Briochebubbles Hat Greensnapple used a worsted weight instead. All three projects work really well which just goes to show how versatile this yarn is.
One thing all these projects have in common: they all look very happy and unique. And this is how it feels knitting with Melted Baby Suri: playful and fun. If your fingers are itching to try it out but you still haven’t found the right pattern, feel free get in touch and we’ll help you choose the perfect Melted Baby Suri project for you.
