BONHEUR D'OCCASION by Louise Robert Design | DK PURE hand-dyed semi-solid yarn

This hand-dyed artisanal yarn is no ordinary knitting yarn: the designer behind the knitting patterns Louise Robert Design meticulously created this beautiful collection.

It's by studying the color pallets that represent her life and career over the years that designer Louise Robert was able to imagine all of the variety available in these hand-dyed artisanal yarns.

BONHEUR D’OCCASION is the first novel by Gabrielle Roy, published in 1945. The story takes place in the once impoverished district of Saint-Henri, Montreal, during the Second World War. Only after reading some of her work did I learn that Gabrielle Roy was also one of my grandmother’s favorite authors. It warmed my heart. - Louise

Mon 1er jacquard: j’ai utilisé un reste de bonheur d’occasion doublé avec du mohair, agencé avec camaïeu doublé de mohair. Mon chandail préféré 😁🧶

Châle Magic Spring

Camaïeu agencée avec Courtisane et Bonheur d’occasion. Un pur plaisir à tricoter!

Magnifique couleur

La couleur de cette laine est magnifique avec ses tons de gris, mauve et rose. Elle est très douce au toucher et se tricote à merveille. Je la recommande.

Perfect non-boring neutral

I love this yarn base: soft and not splity, a joy to knit with. The color Bonheur d'occasion is a beautiful gray with subtle tints of mauve. It's a perfect neutral color with interesting undertones. A new basic for me!
