Quick Ombre Hat

The Quick Ombre Hat by Emily Dormier is the perfect first fair isle project! The pattern uses stranded color work and changes gradually from one color to the next. L & B Yarn Co. used Cascade 220 Superwash, it is 100% wool that is easy-care meaning you can machine wash and dry it! If you have never tried fair isle before L & B Yarn Co. is offering this hat as a class Saturday, April 22nd. This class has been so popular we have added another instructor to open up more spaces! There are a couple of spots still available for the class so click here to find out more. Click here to take a look at the pattern.

 

 

Yarn Tapestry

The Yarn Tapestries that were created on Saturday turned out so great!! This is a great way to use up extra scrap yarn and get something beautiful in return.

It’s fast and simple just cut lengths of yarn and tie onto a natural tree branch or wooden dowel rod.

Add a piece of leather, natural string, or knit your own i-cord to hang your piece in your favorite room!

If you are interested in making your own tapestry without gathering the supplies L & B Yarn Co. will be offering this workshop Saturday, May 13th click here to find out more!

Stripe Magic Scarf

The Stripe Magic Scarf by Universal Yarn is a super quick project! You only need one ball of Uptown Bulky and one ball of Uptown Bulky Amplify. The Amplify has huge yardage (197 yards) so if you have two balls of Uptown Bulky you can make two whole 6′ long scarfs.

The yarn is 100% acrylic so these scarfs are great for washing. The Amplify is a self striping patterned yarn and the regular Uptown Bulky is a solid. You switch between the Amplify and Uptown Bulky every two rows giving the scarf a multi-colored stripe effect. If you have never tried Uptown Bulky before you won’t believe what a soft hand it has, I promise you will love it!! Click here to take a look at the pattern.

Dropped Paper Poncho

Drop Paper Poncho_1

I love this lightweight version of L & B Yarn Co.’s original paper poncho. The dropped stitches make it more open and airy, perfect to throw on over your favorite summer tank! We knit this one out of 3 skeins of Berroco Remix. Remix is a super soft, non-wool tweed yarn made from recycled fibers.

Drop Paper Poncho_3

This machine washable yarn is made up of nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk and linen. The yarn is a great weathered tweed option without the wool. The pattern is great for knitters at any level, there are only a few different stitches you need to know and with minimal seaming it knits up quickly.

Drop Paper Poncho_2

We received 7 colors of Remix in our latest Berroco shipment. Come by the store to pick up your favorite color, or call us to place an order 405-310-3636. The pattern is free with your purchase of the yarn!
