Free Pattern Friday: Capron Throw

May 30, 2014

As the weather starts to heat up, it’s important to find yarns to transition into summer with.  We know this isn’t our first Remix free pattern post (hello, Larry!) but we couldn’t help but share the Capron.

Capron is a soft and textured spring throw that is easy to knit and perfect for picnics and beach days.  Using only 7 balls of Berroco Remix, it will be a perfect choice for a stress-free summer project.  If you have yet to try Remix, now is your chance.  Enjoy the tweedy texture of a cotton, acrylic, silk and linen blend that is comprised of 100% recycled materials.  It’s suitable all year long!

Free Pattern Friday: Tippi Tunic

May 23, 2014

Summer is fast approaching! We are crazy about this elegant and feminine tunic top by Louisa Harding.

fleuris-tippi-collage.jpgThis top calls for two coordinating colors of Fleuris, an aran weight bamboo blend. This pattern is available for free here and knits up quick on a size 10 needle. On top of that, the yarn is on sale for $5.25 a ball. Can it get any better than that?

Fleuris is drapey with a beautiful silky sheen.  It has just a touch of wool to provide structure and give.  It’ll breathe during the warmer months but provide a nice weight when you need it.  We love this yarn and couldn’t help but feature it during last week’s #SaleSunday postGrab your yarn while supplies last!

Happy Friday!  Here’s a freebie for our male readers (or those who like to knit for the special gents in their life).

Casual yet polished, this pullover features a cozy turtleneck and a garter stitch yoke.  It calls for Berroco Remix, a fantastic worsted weight tweed that is made entirely of recycled fibers.  Requiring only 6 to 9 skeins depending on size, you can be green without breaking the budget.

Free Pattern Friday: Arzote

May 02, 2014

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!

mayastyleTake a peek at all the available colors of Maya and hopefully you too can celebrate Free Pattern Friday this week!

Free Pattern Friday: Antique Silk Vest

April 25, 2014

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.
