Staggered Shawl_3

It is a machine washable 50/50 cotton/bamboo blend with amazing drape and softness.  The pattern is fun and definitely holds your interest by staggering the colors every few rows.  The pattern begins in the top center and increases as you work on both sides and the center.

Staggered Shawl_2

There are lots of awesome color combinations but we fell in love with the green, purple, and black the second we saw it!  L & B has over 25 colors to choose from.  You can check out the pattern by clicking here.

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!

 

New Yuri

A new shipment of Yuri in 10 colors is here at L & B Yarn Co. This year round yarn in a sock weight that does so much more than socks, Yuri is made from incredibly soft merino (21 micron) and comes in ten tonally dyed shades. The merino is spun and dyed in Peru and grown in Uruguay, where it is certified to be from woolgrowers that do not practice museling on their sheep. The tone-on-tone dye effect adds a subtle depth to the floral inspired colors. Check out the 8 new patterns in Yuri on Ravelry, just click here!

Nurmilintu

This sweet little shawl by Heidi Alander is a fun quick knit! Heidi says the name Nurmilintu comes from an old Finnish lullaby: Nuku, nuku, nurmilintu…(Free translation: “Sleep, sleep, little bird…”) The shawl is light and airy with a delicate picot bind off which reminds me of bird feathers.

The pattern holds the knitters interest alternating between the lace and garter stitch sections which means not a single purl stitch!

The size is easily adjusted by repeating the garter and lace parts as many times as you wish. L & B used one ball of Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal. This yarn has a hefty 415 yards and is a gorgeous blend of merino wool and cashmere.

We have 10 different colors in stock including three new light colorways perfect for spring. You can visit Heidi Alander on the web at www.sadelmaknits.com. Check out the pattern on her Ravelry store by clicking here.
