Our friends at Berroco also celebrate Free Pattern Friday, so we couldn’t help share their latest offering!
Revamping an old favorite (originally using a discontinued yarn called Lattitude), Arzote is a fabulous summer top knit out of a soft and fluffy cotton/alpaca blend called Maya. We love the softness, loft and color palette. The price is right, too!
Take a peek at all the available colors of Maya and hopefully you too can celebrate Free Pattern Friday this week!
When you’re not quite in the mood for a full length sweater but don’t want to be bored to tears, we find that a sleeveless vest or shell is the perfect antidote.
This adorable peplum vest comes from our friends at Tahki Stacy Charles and calls for a springy sportweight cotton.

Yarn: 876 (1022, 1168, 1314, 1460) yards of sportweight cotton like Cotton Classic Lite
If you don’t see a color in the Cotton Classic Lite that you adore, take a peek at Eco Baby, Autumn Wind or Venezia Sport (for a warmer version).

What’s better than a versatile cowl with a bright pop of color? One that’s reversible! Meet the Dipped cowl, our featured pattern by Veera Välimäki.
