Emmaline

Emmaline

Sprout by Classic Elite Yarn is my favorite bulky cotton of all time!  It is 100% organic, making it environmentally friendly and it’s super soft.  Emmaline by Jennifer Wood is the perfect summer sweater with it’s cap sleeves and gathers giving it a Jane Austen feel.  The pattern is worked from the top down so there is no seaming involved.  You can also try on the sweater as you go to make sure you get the perfect fit.

The raglan increases are incorporated with the yarn over eyelets running across the front of the neckline and sleeves.  Increases are worked on the top section for the bust and the sweater is separated by a purl section to create an empire waist.

The sweater is worked in the round and is mostly knit in stockinette stitch making it a quick project!  Check out the pattern by clicking here.

Baby Mocs

Make these adorable Baby Mocs by Brenda York for your next baby shower gift! You need one ball of Berroco Suede and one Ball of Berroco Plush. You will be able to get at least 2 sets of mocs out of one ball of each. L & B has 7 colors of Suede and 2 colors of plush to choose from.

Both yarns are super soft and will be perfect for that special little one. To take a look at the pattern just click here!

Blooming Flower Cushion

The Blooming Flower Cushion by Lucy of Attic24 is a vintage potholder design from the 1940’s that has been altered to make this cute little pillow.

Lucy has an awesome picture-heavy tutorial that explains precisely how the circle takes shape. With her very detailed explanation you should not have any trouble giving this whimsical pattern a whirl. L & B used 6 different colors of Berroco Comfort.

The project is just as cute in a solid, you could also try just a couple of colors alternating them or even a gradient pallet is really beautiful. Try using up stash yarn and make several to give away as gifts! To take a look at the pattern just click here.

Hanasaku Cowl

The Hanasaku Cowl by Tori Gurbisz is a quick knit worked as one piece. Using the linen stitch and two different types of fibers together makes the finished project very textural. L & B Yarn Co. paired Bamboo Pop and Bamboo Bloom by Universal Yarn for a more lightweight version of the cowl.

The entire project is worked in the round until you use up all of the Bamboo Bloom. We even have enough Bamboo Pop left over to make a Knitted Knocker!!

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!

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!
