Yarns Worth Raving About: Colinette Point 5

If you are looking for a quick knitting/crochet project, then a scarf is always a winner and would make a lovely timeless gift.

There's lots of adorable yarn out there, but some yarns are more adorable than others!

One of them is the Colinette Point 5 pure wool chunky yarn, which comes in a large range of the most beautiful colours.

For my Indigo Rainbow Scarf shown in the image, I needed two hanks of this yarn, colour option Kingfisher no. 33.

The yarn is spun unevenly; it's quite thick in places, and you will need size 12mm needles.

Cast on 14 stitches, 2 knit/2 purl until you've used up all the yarn. Length of the scarf: 150cm x 12cm width. 

Knitted in two days. 

Quick, easy and ideal for a beginner.

  1. Hi there - found your blog via cucumberpatch Facebook page. Colinette Point 5 is fab isn't it? I am so lucky that the Cucumber patch shop (Knit 2 Tog) is about 5 minutes from my house. Bad for my bank balance tho! I love what you've been making.

  2. Hello Craft Matters, thanks for popping in and your message. Lucky you! I wish I had a yarn shop 5 minutes away from my house, but the internet is pretty much close by, too; click, click, and you're done ;-)

    Thinking about ordering more of this yarn for some lovely scatter cushions,but which shade? They're all gorgeous.

    Hope to chat with you again soon.


  3. What a beautiful scarf! I haven't knitted since my first son was born 26 years ago but I think I'll order some of this gorgeous wool and buy some needles and have a go. Mind you, I've forgotten how to even cast on! I love all your stuff - very Stonewylde indeed! Bright blessings to you and I'll let you know how I get on!

  4. Hi Kit,

    thank you so much for leaving a comment. If my blog has inspired you to take up knitting again, then that will make me happy today ;-)

    Yes, please do get in touch again. I also look forward to reading your books very soon. Perhaps they will inspire me to knit and crochet some Stonewylde magickal items ;-)
