chevron baby blanket whirligig

We are featuring chevrons this month!  We chose two patterns and corresponding self-striping yarns to highlight the shape of the chevrons.  The blanket is Chevron Baby Blanket by Espace Tricot, using Whirligig by Cascade or Feza Gradient Kit.  One 200-gram skein will make this size.  We slightly modified the pattern, so be sure to take a picture of our tag when you're in the store.  For the cowl, it's our store pattern Chevron Cowl using Melilla Fingering.  You'll receive a copy of the pattern with purchase of this yarn.

One of our new lines for fall was Melilla Fingering by Cascade.  It's a beautiful and soft blend of Silk, Wool and nylon dyed in long transition color change.  Each colorway is composed of 8 colors that blend from one to the next.  We chose to knit our store sample into a chevron cowl with highlights the color changes and is easy to wear!  It's a free pattern with purchase of this yarn.  With 7 colorways to choose from, you're sure to find one you love!

It's hard to believe it's October.  With the return of rain and leaves changing colors, it officially feels like Autumn!  To honor the coziness of this season, we picked a project that features very cozy baby alpaca.  Braid by Mary-Ann Lammers is a very clever construction.  Straightforward to knit, it has a pop of style and intrigue.  We chose Cascade's Eco Alpaca for its luxuriousness and drape.  It is a worsted weight 100% Undyed Baby Alpaca, so it's a very natural palette that includes marled colorways as well.

Our KALs are Friday 3-6pm and Sunday 2:30-5pm.
