OLD PINE | a textured cowl

 

OLD PINE is a cozy, textured cowl, perfect for pairing two beautiful skeins of hand dyed yarn. The combination of simple stockinette, purl ridges and yarn overs create a stunning, rippled effect. Twisted rib brings the top in for a closer fit while the rippled stitch pattern drapes warmly and comfortably. With endless colour pairings Old Pine is a versatile wardrobe staple for Spring, Autumn and Winter.

Sweet Fiber Accessories E-book Launch!


SWEET FIBER ACCESSORIES 

Set along the banks of the Fraser River in historic Fort Langley, this collection captures the spirit of the West Coast in seven cool weather knits. Twisting cables, deep ribs, traveling lace and textured stitches bring your favourite worsted weight hand dyes to life as cozy cowls, warm toques and an asymmetrical lace shawl. 

All of the patterns include both written and charted instruction. The entire e-book is available for purchase on Ravelry, as well as individual pattern downloads for those of you who just want a few. Be sure to join us in our Ravelry Group to discuss which patterns you plan to make and to share pictures of your FOs when you're done!


THE YARNS 

The entire collection has been designed with our two favourite worsted weight yarns! Our Merino Twist Worsted consists of 100% superwash merino and our Cashmerino Worsted is created with an extra special blend of superwash merino, cashmere and nylon. Both have 180 meters / 200 yards per 115 gram skein and are entirely interchangeable with one another. We've updated our online shop to coincide with the release of the new e-book. If you don't see your favourite colourway available, don't worry - we're already busy dyeing more! Be sure to join our mailing list to stay informed when new stock is added to the shop.
