Free Pattern Friday: Wrapped in Lux

December 22, 2017

The perfect wrap! 

Lightweight, slightly shimmery and classically understated, Wrapped in Lux designed by Allison was a huge hit when originally released. Sadly, Lace Lux has been discontinued. We're happy to now carry Air Lux which has the same gauge, similar fiber content and same gorgeousness as Lace Lux!

Air Lux

The pattern calls for 2 skeins of main color and 1 skein of contrasting color (3 skeins total) of Air Lux

The shawl in the picture is made using Lace Lux. Although the colors of Air Lux aren't the same, they are still beautiful and with eleven gorgeous colors available, we know you'll find a color combination that you'll love!

Free Pattern Friday: Koigu Hat

October 06, 2017

Knit up a colorful, new hat for your little one this fall!

 

The pattern calls for one skein of Koigu KPM or KPPPM, a soft, spoingy yarn that is a joy to work with! 

Koigu

Kids love hats made of Koigu because they're soft and warm yet not bulky.

There are so many fun colors to choose from!  These make perfect gifts too (hint, hint). 

You can snag the yarn here. The pattern is free with the purchase of the yarn to make it. Just mention it at checkout.

Variegated yarn not your thing?  The stitch pattern looks wonderful in a solid such as Lamb's Pride.

Free Pattern Friday: Three Color Cowl

February 26, 2016

A few weeks ago we released the pattern for the Wrapped in Lux shawl, but that was just the beginning of Allison's obsession with Lace Lux. Today we have another exciting pattern to share with you guys. Introducing the Three Color Cowl!

Three Color Cowl - Lace Lux Pattern 

Using three colors of Lace Lux held doubled throughout, this glimmering cowl makes quite a statement despite being so easy to knit.

Three Color Cowl on ImagiKnit.com

We did ours in a combination of purple and taupe, but you can colorblock with any variety of colors. Maybe two grays and a pop color? Three shades of pink? An ombre of blues? It's up to you!
