Snuggly Bunny

New in the shop: Sirdar’s Snuggly Bunny yarn! This fluffy yarn comes in a range of beautiful pastel colors and is perfect for quick, simple stitches. It’s also great to use for trims! There are many adorable baby patterns available, but we also love it in this cozy cowl. This free pattern knits up quickly in the round and has a wonderfully vintage-inspired look.

This yarn feels so cuddly and wonderful, you may to make cowls in multiple colors! Or perhaps move on to a faux fur pillow (another free pattern)… The yarn is machine washable, so snuggle away!

Happy knitting!

Bachi Shawl

The new oversized yarn balls from Noro are perfect for these quick, bulky shawls! Using just two balls, this asymmetrical pattern knits up quickly on size 13 US needles. And we love the vibrant color options. Wrap yourself up in color and warmth with a design that’s fun to knit and fun to wear!
