Bluebird of Happiness

I adore this little bird, and little holiday projects are a great way to use up small quantities of leftover yarn. Wouldn’t it make a super special garland you can pull out for decoration every spring?

PROJECT Vegas

 

 

Vegas

Spring is finally here (if in name only) and we’re starting to start thinking outside the warm & woolly box! I love this simple tank, and I like even more the idea of making it with super soft, cool, and easy to care for (machine wash & dry) Quince & Co Sparrow! The pattern is knit in the round, from the top-down, so you can try it on as you go, and make it as long or cropped as you like.

Project Hack

  • Linen is very stretchy, consider going down a size when you plan your project.
  • Size (measures at bust): 30” (33”, 36”, 39”), (42”, 45”, 48”)

PROJECT Bolan

 

 

Bolan

Bolan is a casual, loose tee, perfect for warm supper days and nights. Made with soft, cool, washable Quince & Co Sparrow it’ll definitely become a go-to garment! Bolan is knitted sideways in four pieces (two panels for the front, two for the back), and worked from the centre out to the ends of the short sleeves

RESTOCKED Quince & Co Sparrow

04b67-quince2band2bco2bsparrow2bdisplay2bskeins2bblog

Quince & Company Sparrow

Sparrow is one of the loveliest linen yarns I’ve ever seen. This super high-quality organic linen is has a slight sheen and works up STUNNINGLY. It has a smooth hand and is crisp as you knit it. After washing and wearing it becomes handkerchief-soft and drapey – perfect for all year wear. It’s great in tanks, shawls, and breezy cardigans, and lovely as can be in bags, wash cloths, and other home accessories. Quince & Co has designed exquisite patterns with Sparrow, you can browse them HERE, or check out all the pattern ideas on Ravelry. You can also see our past blog posts featuring Sparrow.

Perkins Pullover

I find this simple little pullover exceptionally inspiring for spring/summer. It’s worked in one piece from the top down with a looser tension and easy yarnovers make for an interesting detail. You know my opinion on these things, I love a good K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Silly), and I consider 250 finished projects on Ravelry a good referral.

Size

Keep in mind, linen is a very drapey and stretchy textile, and if you like your garments closer fitting you might want to go down a size. The garment is shown in size 34″ with no ease. A-line shaping is created by changing to a larger needle size.

  • Finished Bust: 31¼ (34, 37, 40, 43, 46, 48¾, 51, 53, 56)” or [79.5 (87, 94, 101.5, 109, 116, 124, 129.5, 134.5, 142) cm]

Materials

  • Quince & Company Sparrow: 4 (5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins
  • 3.5mm/US4-32″ circular needles
  • 3.75mm/US5- 32″ circular needles

NEW & FREEBIE Rowan Denim

Rowan Original Denim DISPLAY

Rowan Original Denim

Rowan Original Denim is a 100% cotton yarn, which behaves like denim fabric.  It shrinks slightly on its first wash and the colour continues to fade gradually over time, creating a unique look. It’s great for people of all ages, and all kinds of projects, including sweaters, tanks, blankets, bags, facecloths and tea-towels, etc.

Rowan Original Denim is suitable for all-year-round knits and showcases textured stitches and cabling brilliantly. If you want to keep your Rowan Original Denim garments looking sharp, try hand washing in a delicate wash and add a cup of white vinegar to the water before adding the garments.

DENIM HACKS

  • Rowan Original Denim is dyed with indigo, and while using this yarn you can expect dye to rub off on your hands and needles, especially the darker shades.
  • Consider using metal needles and wearing dark colours while you work with it, (and definitely stay away from white furniture).
  • To stabilize the dye, block your knits in cold water with a cup of white vinegar.
  • Read more about using denim yarns and knitting denim squares.
