Madelinetosh Vintage is well stocked and on sale in the shop right now, so we thought it was time for a post highlighting this beautiful yarn. Vintage is 100% superwash wool, on the heavy end of worsted weight. It’s meant to be a high quality workhorse yarn, versatile enough for small accessories and outerwear alike, but still bouncy and soft to the touch.
I’ve personally used Vintage in a number of projects. I originally bought a large number of skeins, thinking I would make the Kerrera Hoodie. This pattern is beautiful, and has been knit in vintage by a number of Ravelers with beautiful results.
The Commuter Fingerless Mittens were a perfect use for my Vintage in Tart. The simple stockinette and cable really allow the yarn to shine, and the pattern is free!
This two tone hat is super stylish, with an asymmetrical brim formed using short rows; it would look beautiful in Robin’s Egg and Warm Mushroom:
Whatever patterns you decide on, Vintage is a great choice for projects that call for beautiful, saturated colors, and hard wear!
