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.

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.

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!

This oversized shawl by Berroco Yarn is a great accessory to wrap up in on a cool spring evening. The charted lace pattern is easy to memorize and the yarn is luxurious. You just need 5 balls of Berroco Yarns new Summer Silk and L & B has 8 colors in stock!

3 Color Cashmere Cowl

3-Color Cashmere Cowl_1

I love the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli. L & B Yarn Co. decided to knit ours up in a lightweight spring yarn, Hempathy by Elsebeth Lavold. The yarn is a hemp, cotton, and modal blend and is going to be fabulous with my spring wardrobe. L & B has 12 colors available to choose from in the original solid and 8 colors available in the new variegated Hempathy Prints.

3-Color Cashmere Cowl_2

This knit flew by, it was one of those projects that I didn’t want to end. The pattern changes periodically making you want to keep knitting so you can see how the next pattern looks in the yarn. I used 5 balls of Hempathy (2 pale silver, 2 bleached white, and 1 vibrant lemon) I literally used up every inch of the vibrant lemon but I had enough to finish that section.

3-Color Cashmere Cowl_3

Blocking this project went very well, the yarn is machine washable and I washed it on gentle cycle and then laid flat to dry. This yarn knitted up nicely and even more exciting is it washed beautifully. If you haven’t tried this pattern yet check it out by clicking here. You won’t be sorry that you did!!

Spiral Shawl

As engaging to style as it is to crochet, the Spiral Shawl by Donna Childs is worked in wedges formed by single, half-double and double crochet stitches. The sawtooth edge is shaped with short rows that are offset at the beginning of the row by chain-stitch extensions; the technique creates the narrow crescent shape. A narrow single-crochet band reinforces the top edge. Crocheted with 3 skeins of Silk Garden Lite this is a great accent piece for spring.

The colors of Noro adds drama with bright flashes of turquoise, pink and yellow against dark blue. The pattern can either be found in Noro Knitting Magazine Issue 9 or on Ravelry, just click here!
