New FREE Pattern: Simple Gauntlets

These gauntlets are fast, simple, and very satisfying. They make quick, easy gifts that stand out.

They use 1 skein of Noro Odori, a soft & comfortable yarn that changes colour all by itself (it feels like Noro Taiyo, but it’s thicker). The yarn’s texture and depth of colour works with the simple design to create extra interest and a unique, handmade aesthetic.

New Free Pattern: Easy Loose Cabled Cowl


This pattern is a simple, straightforward, easy project great for new knitters (great way to learn cables). It knits up fast on thick yarn and BIG needles (12mm).  It’s easy, is a satisfying quickie, and looks impressive to non-knitters (hint: it’s very giftable).

It is made with one skein of Brown Sheep Company Burly Spun (not bad at $20.97 per skein),  but it would also make an excellent excuse to buy a couple of skeins of Malabrigo Rasta (especially in their luminescent semi-solid colours).

NEW Free Pattern – Blink Cowl


by Haley Waxberg

This is our most recent freebie, the Blink Cowl. It is made with a single skein of Berroco Link, and knits up in about a half hour.  It makes a great last minute gift, and the super-super bulky yarn is a very contemporary look. The styling is simple, wide ribs to give the cowl structure and show off the great big stitches.
