Staff Creations: Jules’ Hearts on Repeat Hat

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.

Staff Creations: Jules’ Sweater

 

jules1

Can you believe this is the first pullover Jules has made? Following the pattern “Faith” from the Cathedral Booklet from Classic Elite Yarns, this two-colored Icelandic sweater works up in a flash on 10s.  Jules finished hers in just a week!

Her wool sensitivities in mind, Jules used Comfort Chunky in Raspberry Coulis color 5717 (5 skeins) and Dusk color 5713 (1 skein).  Faith works up well in a myriad of bulky weight yarn; browse our collection and see what strikes your fancy!  We’d love to see one worked up in Cascade 128 Superwash or Malabrigo Mecha.

Staff Creations: Allison’s L.1 Scarf

With the dreamy drape and wonderful softness of linen, how could we limit ourselves to just one color?  Allison worked up this scarf blending cool neutral colors with a pop of green.

L.1 takes 6 skeins of Shibui Linen to make — 2 skeins for color A , 2 skeins for color B , and one skein each of C and D.  The range of color options ensures that you can build your perfect project.  Made of 100% linen, this scarf is lightweight enough that you can wear it even in warmer months.
