Interpretations Spotlight: Making Space

Our second trunk show spotlight has landed on Veera Välimäki’s Making Space.

This cardigan is described as being truly “rhythmic”.  The eyelet detailing at the yoke steadily grows and changes pace as it hits the accented stripe details.  Worked seamlessly from the neck down, this project will keep your attention and knit up surprisingly fast.

hat1

Love is in the air, but a chill is in the air too!  Keep those ears warm this Valentine’s Day with a design from our very own Jules, Hearts on Repeat Hat.  We are giving away this pattern for free with the purchase of the yarn to make it — two skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash Aran or comparable aran weight yarn (you’ll need at least 200 yards total).

This pattern is compatible with any aran weight yarn, but wooly fibers really show off the colorwork.  We hope to see more people wearing their hearts on their head!  If you’re shopping with us online, please mention that you’d like the pattern for “Hearts on Repeat Hat” in the special instructions section at checkout.

Holiday Knitspiration: Woodland Hoodlet

 

Simply put, we are utterly captivated by the whimsy of the Woodland Hoodlet.  We’ve seen some hoodlets come through the shop (some of our staffers have made a few as well), and they all exude such charm.  A delightfully swift knit on US 15s yet such a unique and intricate design, the Woodland Hoodlet is sure to impress.

The pattern calls for 5-7 balls of Big Wool or comparable super bulky yarn.  Pick up the pattern and get started today!
