Pick up the kit, and we'll cover the cost of the pattern!
Color Craze Cowl
Designed by Tamy Gore and knit by Juleen in Fibre Co. Amble
Tamy Gore’s Color Craze Cowl is the perfect project to play with colors and textures! With simple brioche, slip stitches, and stripes thrown in for good measure, this cowl features the gorgeous colors and soft hand of the Fibre Co.'s Amble yarn. Each kit contains 1 skein of the Amble and 5 skeins of Amble Minis (70% easy-wash Merino, 20% easy-wash alpaca, 10% recycled nylon) in the color combination of your choice and the pattern for Color Craze Cowl, which will make one cowl approximately 11.5" wide by 24" high.

Designed by Elizabeth Smith and knit by Julie H. in Lily Kate Makes Axis Worsted
Elizabeth Smith’s Morgan is an open-style, drop-shoulder vest featuring a hi/lo split hem, a textured slip stitch pattern, and pops of contrasting color. Julie H knit up Morgan (swooning a little bit all the while) in Lily Kate Makes Axis Worsted (90% Merino, 10% Suri alpaca), a yarn whose twist and softness lead to a fabric with unparalleled squish and terrific shape retention! Morgan, available in 12 sizes, is designed to be worn with 8-12” of positive ease (please note: drop shoulder garments like Morgan require more positive ease than other types of sweater construction).
New in the Shop!
Designed by Isabell Kraemer and knit by Kate R-W in Fibre Co. Arranmore Light
Another stunner from Isabell Kraemer, Mariechen is worked seamlessly from the top down with raglan increases to shape the yoke. The pattern sizes range from XS to XXL (37.5"–51.75" at the bust), the cardigan featuring an entertaining array of textures and motifs combining cables, lace, and double seed stitch, all highlighting Arranmore Light's impressive stitch definition. Very pretty!
