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.

We are head over heels in love with our newest trunk show featuring Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki’s new collaboration Interpretations.
We have 12 fantastic samples on display at the shop for you to check out. If you find one you can’t live without, we’ll set you up with the pattern and help you find the perfect yarn to make it in. Here’s a little sneak peek!
Stay in touch with us on Facebook as we highlight each design individually throughout the month.
Designer Beth Whiteside will be teaching a couple classes at our shop this Spring and we can’t wait to tell you all about them!
Beth is a published designer with patterns in Creative Knitting and Knitter’s Magazine. She has taught at knitting conventions all over the country, so it’s always fun to have her stop by our neck of the woods.
Coming up at the end April is our Playful Pleats, Wondrous Welts class. Pleat and welt (tuck) techniques fold fabric back on itself, creating flaps and corded ridges. They can be used to add or eliminate volume, shape peplums or necklines and give texture to a stitch pattern or room to walk in a skirt. You’ll learn knife, boxed and inverted pleat combinations.
In May, we have a class to awaken your inner designer: Cowl-o-Rama! Take stitch patterns you admire and turn them into cowls your adore.
Intrigued? Check out our class schedule for more information!
To welcome Cascade’s new self-striping yarn Tangier to our web store, we couldn’t help but feature this free cowl pattern on this week’s Free Pattern Friday.
Since Tangier blends lightweight silk with cotton and rayon, it is the perfect go-to yarn for your Spring and Summer accessories. This subtly striping cowl will double as a capelet during chilly evenings out.
