Our Tribe: a new garment design is on its way…

Seems like there is a new rule on my blog: if you see a brick wall – that might be a sign of a new garment design. My project with Our Tribe yarn* is finished and I even have ready pictures to share. But I thought I could tease you a little bit and let you guess what it will be.

Not sure what I mean by a “brick wall garment”? Here is the proof. I have two garments designs so far: Nori Dress and Whirl Mandala Cardigan (both free) And they both were pictured against a brick wall. So next time you see it, you will know what to expect. :)

Are you curious what “Our Tribe” means? It’s a brand new yarn by Scheepjes released in the end of the year. Each colorway was hand-picked by members of Scheepjes Bloggers Team, and I got my own shade as well. It’s called “Lilla Bjorn” and because I used MY own yarn for a new design, it will also be named Lilla Bjorn. A simple and unassuming name, I think (haha).

I have told the story of Our Tribe yarn in THIS blog post. To choose colors was a bit painful and I couldn’t decide for a few hours in a row. Should those be the colors I like? Or the colors I would wear? Would it be a gradient yarn? Should the colors transit nicely or can they be random?... A question after a question. I should admit now I have lots of respect for those people who develop new shades for yarns. That’s lots of work, and every new shade should not look similar with others…

After approximately an hour of inner fights with myself I heard a voice behind my back, “Ah, Tatsiana, just relax. Don’t think too hard, just choose several colors you like and that’s it”. And so I finally chose…

Lilla Bjorn shade looks a little bit unexpected in a finished crochet fabric. The colors play differently than they look in a skein. And I love this play. I have finished two garments: one with my own shade and another one with mix of two colorways. But my friend Ksenia (who kindly helps me with taking pictures – we do it in her yard, the one with the brick wall ;) says my own colorway suits me better. But I still like both!

Our Tribe was released in the end of the year, and first projects and patterns have started to pop up. The latest released design is Our Tribe, My Tribe shawl by Nerissa of Miss Neriss. She crocheted two samples, and I am in love with this faded version. Can you believe it uses three different colorways?
Can you really say from the picture where one starts and another ends? The pattern is hot on Ravelry right now, and Nerissa is hosting an insta-CAL. So if you would like to have a closer look, you can find the pattern HERE.

And now back to my garment… Can you guess from the pictures what is it? Don’t be shy and share your guesses in comments. And the project will be revealed later this week.

  1. I do love your "Tatsiana" colourway! :-) Mmmm...I think your garment is a Poncho type thingy, but with holes for the arms? Like an oversize pullover? :D Whatever it is, it's going to be lovely! :-)

  2. Originally, I was going to say a skirt. However, I think I see arms holes so I am now thinking a pullover or poncho type of garment. I love these colors and can't wait to get some of this yarn!

    1. Hmmm... A skirt might be an interesting idea. I haven't crocheted any skirts yet :)

    1. Hi Carolyn, it's not a poncho but something looking like this.

  4. Hmmmm ... arm holes, so something for the torso. A vest or tunic? Whatever it is, it will be lovely. Your work always is!
