This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for a specific yarn. There are projects that use it, and patterns that call for it. It's so handy to have all this in one place!
Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere. If they're only available on Ravelry we will say that, but not link to it.
Titus DK is a beautiful and subtle yarn. It is a very luxurious blend of superwash merino and mulberry silk. The silk gives it a gorgeous shine (especially in dark or rich colours). It is ideal for all sorts of projects, from gloves to garments and everything in between. It washes well in the machine, and the silk gives it strength so it can take a lot of use.
The first part of this blog post will give you patterns that specifically call for Titus DK and the second part shows you our projects using this yarn. Do you have a project in Titus DK that you would like us to include? Email us at email@example.com with an image and the pattern information and we will add it. This page will grow over time as more designs are released and more projects finished!
For designs released since 2018 you can find links to social media for the designers and publications on the Design Collaboration page HERE.
