Andrea Mowry has a new pattern.
The Douglas Cardi is a grandpa-style cardigan complete with stripes, big pockets, and a relaxed fit. Named for my father, who is now fondly known as Grandpa Doug to my kiddos, it reminds me of when I spruced up my school uniform with my own grandpa’s golfing cardigan when I was in middle school. I love to amp up my cozy with this sweater no matter the outfit! This sweater is knit from the bottom up with afterthought pockets and a picked up button band.
We have kits in three different yarns. Please contact us and we can put together colours for you.
Log Cabin Afghan
The Log Cabin Afghan is knit with Noro Kureyon. Each square takes one ball. This is a great project for travelling. You only need one ball at a time. No sewing required - the squares are joined with a 3-needle bind off.
We used Cascade 220 for the border.
We used the Paintbox Log Cabin pattern that you can find on Ravelry.
Rowan Felted Tweed Colour
Inspired by nature’s landscapes, the varying shades of Felted Tweed Colour are truly captivating to knit and crochet. From subtle moorland russets and browns, to vibrant sunset pinks and fresh, grassy greens, the tweedy hues gradually evolve along the fibres at a gentle and unhurried pace. A stunning fair isle effect is created by simply working with two shades, while the perfect combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca makes this yarn equally ideal for delicate lace and sumptuous cables.
As dusk eases in beneath the breathless cold of winter, our senses seem to sharpen. The air on our skin, the softness of wool in our fingers, the distinct prism of colours that glitter from the lights at the edge of our vision. Everything is richer, vibrant, captivating. Just like our new Advent 2021 kits! This season, our new Advent kits help us settle into that beautiful space of cozy contentment. We’ve dreamed up two colourway sets this year to choose from: Walk in the Snow (cool blues and purples) and Fire & Ice (warm blues and reds). Keeping the mystery throughout, both sets lead you down a rainbow path of discovery and delight. You’ll have the option of THREE mystery patterns to choose from: a triangular knit shawl, a knit scarf, and a crochet scarf. Each design playfully highlights every hue you receive in your Advent calendar and feature a sampling of lace and texture.
