Staff Creation: Kelsey's Aranami Shawl

May 31, 2014

We are self-proclaimed Shibui addicts around here, so as soon as Pebble hit the shelves, Kelsey snapped up 5 skeins and cast on for an Aranami Shawl.

pebble-15-sidewalkPebble is a blend of recycled silk, merino wool and cashmere and is available in fingering weight. There is a full range of tweedy colors to choose from, check them out!


The Aranami Shawl (by Olgajazzy) asks for 5 colors of fingering weight yarn. We love the ombre look she and Kelsey chose, but bright colors could be fun as well! Snag a copy of the pattern here.


Looking great, Kelsey!

Staff Creations: Jules' Hearts on Repeat Hat

February 13, 2014


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

January 31, 2014



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: Katelyn's Moderne Baby Blanket

June 07, 2013

Moderne Baby Blanket

Katelyn whipped up this Moderne Baby Blanket to celebrate her not-so-baby-sized baby brother’s college graduation.   The pattern calls for DK weight yarn, so to modify to an afghan size, Katelyn used size 11 needles and a much bigger yarn — Cascade 128 Superwash — and followed the pattern as written.

Katelyn used four skeins per color but ended up dipping into a fifth skein for the two largest sections.  She crocheted along the edges. You can access most of the pattern for free online, with the exception of the mitered border.  The full pattern is available in Mason Dixon Knitting.

Look how big the blanket turned out to be!
