Project Ideas for Artfil Colour Bundles
Ombre Infinity by Cynthia Parker

The Ombre Infinity by Cynthia Parker calls for sport weight yarn but, since the Artfil Belle base is a heavy fingering weight, we think it would create a wonderful version of this pattern. Very on trend and versatile, wear this scarf as a single or double loop or pull it up over your head for stylish protection from the elements.
Mad Mini Wrap by Sharyn Anhalt
Although the Mad Mini Wrap by Sharyn Anhalt uses 5 colours and the Artfil Colour Bundles have 6, with a little tweak here and there in the colour usage / placement, the finished scarf will be fabulous!
Contravene by Lynn Di Cristina

Simple stockinette and lace are alternated in the lovely colour changing Contravene scarf by Lynn Di Cristina. Simply knit to the end of each skein in Artfil’s colour bundle until the end! I think for this one, we would suggest going up to a 4mm needles and casting on slightly fewer stitches.
Five new speckled colourways in Belle are also now available in store and online. Aren’t they amazing? ARTFIL Belle is an ideal sock blend of 80% superwash merino wool and 20% nylon. One skein is enough to complete a pair of socks, two will create a good sized lace shawl.? Each skein is hand-painted using 80% less water than any other dyeing method.? Machine washable and versatile, Belle is suitable for all fingering weight projects.
