We love these gorgeous kits by Artyarns. They give you everything you need to make a stunningly unique shawl!
The Drama Queen kit features some of Artyarns’ most luxurious hand-dyed yarns: 1 skein of Merino Cloud and 1 skein of Silk Mohair Glitter for a touch of sparkle. It comes with 3 downloadable patterns (a Chevron Shawl, a Triangle Shawl and a Chain Link Shawl).
The Taj Shawl Kit includes 2 skeins of Ensemble Light, a Silk/Cashmere blend in hand-dyed coordinating colors, as well as 3 downloadable patterns (a Triangle Shawl, a Rectangle Shawl and a Tunic).
Artyarns’ patterns are very well-written, with expert guidance and lots of photos to help you along the way. So don’t be shy–this is a perfect time to step-up your knitting and create something unforgettable!
100% cashmere… with sparkle… in a quick, one-skein project kit… what could be better? This Puffy Cable Cowl Kit by Artyarns is simple but luxurious.
We have several colors available, which are even more beautiful in person. Come find your favorite! And mention this blog post to receive a FREE cable needle set, now through the end of the month (while supplies last).
Every year, around this time, we suddenly realize that the holidays are fast approaching and we’d better get cracking on those holiday knitted gifts! To help you create something special and beautiful in a short amount of time, we’re currently featuring some really lovely small projects. These are knit in just 1 to 3 skeins and come in some truly decadent, gift-worthy fibers.
One of our favorites this year is the Quaking Aspen Cowl by Tahki Stacy Charles. It’s a quick, 3 skein project in their Vermont Yarn (50% Merino / 50% Alpaca). It would make a perfect holiday gift.
We’ve also just received some new kits for the Puffy Cable Cowl by ArtYarns. For $58, these kits have everything you need to make a truly unique gift: 1 skein of Cashmere Glitter (100% Italian Cashmere with Lurex) and a free downloadable pattern. All you’ll need to add is a set of US 6 needles. Just mention this blog post to receive 15% off!
If neither of these is quite right, we have plenty of other options for you, in Alpaca, Cashmere, Cotton and more! Come in soon and get those holiday projects started!
A lazy knit-a-long… lazy because there’s no deadline or finish date! This beautiful little wrap would make a perfect gift for the holidays… so if you start now, you’ll have time to make gifts and one for yourself, too!
This luxurious yarn is knit in a simple pattern with an unusual construction… It’s worked in Merino Cloud (80% extra fine Merino/20% Cashmere) and a complementing Beading Silk or Beaded/Sequin Mohair for a bit of sparkle. Working with this yarn is a true treat. You can find more information about the knit-a-long on Ravelry here.
Looking for a quick (but luxurious) winter project? Check out the Gradients Kit by Artyarns. It features 4 skeins (135 yards each) of Merino Cloud (80% fine merino and 20% cashmere) in softly gradient colors, and comes with free pattern options!
The kit comes with a coupon for 2 free shawl patterns from Artyarns (downloadable from their website here).
In addition, mention this blog post when you purchase the kit at The Knitting Nest, and we’ll include at no cost this beautiful pattern from Ravelry: the Merino Cloud Gradient Cowl pattern by Iris Schreier.
I enjoy knitting, but more importantly – wearing – Infinity Cowls/Scarves. Usually a 300 yard project, knit on any size needle, with any yarn. Then drape, wrap, and love!
