Spotlight: Falkland Aran Yarn and Pattern Book

September 27, 2016

Fall is finally here and it's a great time to start a new, real meaty project!  Think cables and textured stitches.  Falkland Aran is the perfect yarn and the Falkland Aran Book has the perfect patterns to sink your teeth into!

Style

Falkland Aran is 100% Merino from sheep that are organically farmed on the Falkland Islands. This wonderfully soft yarn has a tight twist which gives it fantastic stitch definition. It's perfect for cables and textured stitches. 

Default Title

The Falkland Aran  Book has 12 patterns that showcase the beauty of Falkland Aran. The pattern book is unique in that there are patterns for women, men and children! Here are some details on a few of our favorites.

Free Pattern Friday: Sockhead Slouch Hat

September 16, 2016

We have your next favorite hat - the Sockhead Slouch Hat! 

sockhead slouch hat

This super cute and super popular pattern by Kelly McClure uses only one skein of sock yarn.  There's a few inches of ribbing then miles and miles of stockinette (in the round so no purling!)  which makes this a a perfect project for social knitting, traveling, watching TV or just about anything.  There are so many yarn possibilities!   Hand-dyed yarns such as Malabrigo Sock or Tosh Merino Light are always beautiful.

The Sockhead Slouch Hat would be super cute in stripes!  Try a self striping yarn such as Zauberball or Rialto Luxury Sock for stripes without the work.

Solids more your thing?  Super Lamb Sock or Cumbria Fingering are beautiful yarns in great color choices.

Top it off with a super soft Lapin Pom Pom and you're good to go!
