You can knit this jacket using the colors shown or customize it to celebrate the parents’ favorite team!  We are pretty partial to orange, black and white (go Giants!) but we’ll of course help you create your own combo.

You can download a free copy of the pattern here and view the many colors of Baby Cashmerino that are available by clicking here.  Happy Friday!

Free Pattern Friday: Desertstar Tank

Summer in San Francisco often means you’re hot one minute and chilly the next.  This sleeveless pullover from Berroco is the perfect layering piece!

Desertstar is perfect for San Francisco because you can either pop in over a breezy maxi dress during the day or wear it with a long sleeve tee at night.  The drapey high-low hem makes it a statement piece.  The best news yet?  The pattern is totally free.

This top calls for a cotton and alpaca blend called Maya that will provide just the right amount of warmth.  Since it is cable spun, you’ll find the yarn much lighter and springier than your typical cotton.

Click here to download a free copy of the Desertstar top and then browse our selection of Maya to find the perfect shade to complement your summer wardrobe.  Happy knitting!

Free Pattern Friday: K.3 Kavo Scarves

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!

k.3-two

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).

Shibui-Solo-K3-3

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.
