We’ve got a long weekend ahead of us, folks! That means maximum yarn crafting time, so if you haven’t yet tackled a new skill, this is a golden opportunity to do so.
Today we’re taking a look at three yarn industry companies I’ve had the pleasure of designing for. All three of these have become favorites of mine. I fee like I always say this about yarn companies, but everyone I know who works for them is honestly really nice and passionate about what they do. Maybe that’s why I love the yarn world so much!
It was tassels and wall hangings galore on the craft blogs right now! You can tell it’s getting warmer because I saw very few wearable yarn craft ideas online this week. I’m calling it: home accessories are the craft of the moment!
Get to know Yarnthology, a company that does things differently by carefully selecting yarn brands based on how they treat people, animals, and the environment. Enter to win a giveaway to try Yarnthology for yourself!
In case this isn’t incredibly obvious by now, I love knitting shawls. I’m obsessed with playing with the geometry possibilities, the outfit possibilities, and the chance to show off some beautiful yarn on the canvas that is a big, flat piece of knitting. This new shawl pattern began as a wee experiment with making a shawl featuring increases along one side of the work every few rows, which forms a right triangle. I love the fact that the yarn over increases are hidden in this piece’s chain edge and the wide, diagonal ribs are formed by simply alternating groups of 6 knit and purl stitches, hence the name Sixth Degree Shawl. I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I did!
