BERROCO TRUNK SHOW On Now to July 17th

What’s A Trunk Show?

In case you didn’t know, a ‘trunk show’ is when a distributor or manufacturer loans us a small collection of their samples for short period of time (we don’t get to choose which samples we get). Clients can come in and look, feel and try on the garments, and get an overall feel for what they are like. It’s an extremely useful way to explore new possibilities in terms of yarns and projects – you never know what you’ll fall in love with, or what looks amazing on you! I’ll blog a few projects from the collection every few days, but if you feel like exploring the contents are available below:

Garments Included in this Trunk Show

Tees

Shawls

Ponchos & Swonchos

Sweaters

Etta

Etta is a pretty summer tank perfect for everyday wear. The subtle lace yoke makes is a simple charted stitch pattern that makes knitting this top in one piece a breeze. We’ve already sold a few of these kits as pre-order and our clients have been really happy with the results!

Olive

This one’s for the new knitters, the prodigal knitters, and the more seasoned knitters who are struggling with what I affectionately call “pandemic brain”. This FREE pattern from Berroco is a very simple, very beginner-friendly poncho/wrap. It’s basically a big rectangle that’s seamed up the side.
