New kits: Gideon shawl + worsted weight trios

Gideon by Melissa Schaschwary

A soothing triangle shawl, with minimal, yet effective texture which demonstrates that sometimes less is more. This beautiful shawl combines two of our favourite worsted weight yarns, Cashmerino Worsted and Merino Twist Worsted. Melissa Schaschwary combines the rustic Bruin and the gorgeous Ever Grey for her version of this stunning shawl.

I've put together several yarn kit combinations that I think capture the beauty of the original design, they can all be found right here in the shop.

 


 

worsted weight trios: 3 skeins, 3 ways

Our worsted weight trios are bundles of three skeins in three different colourways, perfect for a group of single skein accessories or colourwork combos. Trios are currently available in both our Cashmerino Worsted and Merino Twist Worsted bases. Each base has five different colour combinations up for grabs, including the mystery + sequoia + marshland combination that was used for three of our hats designs in the Sweet Fiber Accessories e-book.

Caramel Slouch by Alexa Ludeman of Tin Can Knits

Wellington by Jane Richmond

 

"This textural hat features a simple repeating pattern reminiscent of raindrops. Using a unique combination of stitches to mimic the look of a cabled honey comb stitch without the need of a cable needle, this stitch pattern only looks difficult. Inspired by the rainy weather indicative of west coast winters, this hat satisfies both form and function."
