In San Francisco, we wear scarfs 365 days a year. We love our wool, but some days we need something a bit lighter. The K.3 scarf fits the bill!
Using 5 skeins of Shibui Kavo, you can have fun colorblocking your scarf any way you choose. We chose the lengthwise version that calls for 5 colors but you can also knit it vertically with only two colors (3 skeins main, 2 skeins contrast).
Kavo is a lightweight cotton and silk blend with a unique slubby texture. In order to retain this texture, be sure NOT to block your scarf after you finish knitting it.
This pattern is normally available for $6, but you can snag a free copy with the purchase of the yarn to make it! Drop by the shop or browse the selection of Kavo online. If purchasing online, be sure to request the Shibui K.3 pattern in the Special Instructions section at checkout.
As the weather heats up, we sometimes find ourselves grabbing our crochet hooks more often than our knitting needles! And what better project to whip up when your patience is dwindling than a quick pair of cozy house slippers?
This pattern calls for two balls in coordinating colors of Katia’s Big Ribbon yarn. The pattern features a photo tutorial, so crocheting a pair will be a breeze! Click here to download a free copy.
You could also peek at the RibbonXL for other color options. Creating different color combos for your slippers will be the best part!
In honor of the impending summer solstice, we couldn’t help but share this citrus inspired knit!
Orangelo is sweet and bright like its namesake. It’s a fast an easy knit, worked from the bottom up with decreases throughout to define each “slice”. All you need is one ball of Comfort Chunky or Weekend Chunky and a pair of #10.5 needles!
Happy knitting and happy summer!
Want an instant gratification project this weekend? If you know your way around a crochet hook, you could whip up a cozy, self-striping cowl in no time!
Today we are featuring two free patterns that use one of our favorite yarns, Chunky Mochi. Using a P sized hook, you can select either the short or long version. The short version (shown on the top left) uses two balls of yarn. The free pattern can be found here. The longer version (shown on the bottom right) can be wrapped once around the neck and uses six balls. The free pattern for the long version can be found here.
Chunky Mochi is so soft and squishy you’ll never want to put it down! It’s so much fun to watch the colors shift as you work. Pick a shade you can’t resist and get hooking!
