Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply
Vivacious 4ply is the yarn of choice for Project 4 in A Year of Techniques. A single skein is plenty to make Romi Hill’s pattern for the Talmadge Cloche, a cute hat teaches best practices when it comes to knitting on an edging, plus two sturdy cast-ons to keep in your back pocket for those situations when a long-tail cast-on simply will not do.
Note: this is for the yarn only (pattern not included). You may purchase the pattern for Project 4 as part of the ebook of A Year of Techniques, which is available at Arnall-Culliford Knitwear or print edition with ebook download code available in the MDK Shop here.

Fyberspates is a UK company known for the brilliant colors of its hand-dyed yarns. These clever dyers keep in mind the importance of the textures and fabrics that handknitting creates, so their hand dyes are “made specifically not to distract from the fabrics created with our yarns.” This approach yields gorgeous skeins that do not diminish in beauty once they are knitted up.
Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply is a superwash Merino fingering weight yarn. Gorgeous stuff.
