Lilac, violet, periwinkle… I think these colours will be everywhere this spring – and they certainly are in the Whirl 762 Popin Candy colourway!

Dreaming of spring – Whirl 760 Candy Man
Dreaming of spring with soft and sweet colours… Whirl 760 Candy Man is available in the shop!
To be completely honest, when it comes to socks, I tend to turn to knitting… But you can also make great socks in crochet!
This gorgeous crochet sock pattern named Marguerite was designed by my friend Sylvie Damey.
Worked in tall stitches, the Marguerite socks are fast to make!
The new sock yarn with hemp in my shop (Admiral Hanf) works perfectly for the Marguerite socks – one ball will make a pair.
The yarn can be found here: https://boutique.annettepetavy.com/home/777-fil-a-chaussettes-avec-chanvre-admiral-hanf.html
And Sylvie’s pattern is available

A yarn for socks – and more!
It has taken me a long time to find a sock yarn that I wanted to sell – I was looking for something special and inspiring.
And I have found it! A beautiful yarn that works for socks but also for many other lovely projects, and with a very interesting fiber content.
This little miracle is called Admiral Hanf, a yarn from the German company Schoppel Wolle. The yarn is a blend of 67% wool, 23% biodegradable polyamide and 10% hemp.
The semi-solid colours are subtly nuanced and the weight makes it a great companion for the multicolored Zauberball 100 which I also sell and design with (but, please, no socks in Zauberball 100, it’s pure merino wool!)
Swatching the yarn l’Exquis
To me it’s an essential tool – and a lot of fun, too! Step inside my designer brain in this video.
