Even More Options!

Sometimes you find a pattern you just love, but not always the color choices that go along with it. So you ponder if you should go with the yarn it calls for and settle for a color that might not totally speak to you, or prepare yourself to make some tweaks if you choose to make a substitution.

We are in love with Fortuna, the newest addition to our spring collection of yarns. And while we always have new patterns to support a new yarn, there are only so many our design team can produce.

  The good news is that new Fortuna and a seasonal favorite, Bella Lino, are interchangeable!  

Semi-solid shades of Fortuna and the variegated tones of Bella Lino

 Dyed on the same yarn base, Fortuna is available in 10 rich tone-on-tone colors while Bella Lino has 13 striping colorways in just the right balance of bright and muted color combinations for summer.

That means there are a lot of summer-ready designs to choose from for both of these yarns.  

Frankie in two shades of Fortuna
Frankie is a cute ruffled tank top that would also be beautiful in any of the Bella Lino colors. Or consider adding an extra bit of color and interest by combining the two in Francine? You could make the border accents with both Fortuna and  Bella Lino or choose Bella Lino as the main color and combine the softer tones of Fortuna as the accents.

Two other Bella Lino favorites are Wavelength and Stand by Me. These pieces would be equally beautiful in Fortuna.

You get the idea – the two yarns can be swapped, combined, mixed matched – there are all sorts of possibilities! We can’t wait to see what you make!
