Kureyon Air Cowl

This cowl by L & B Yarn Co. can be knitted in just a few hours! We used Noro Kureyon Air, a super bulky single ply yarn. Like all Noro Yarns it comes in brilliant self-striping colors. This yarn is 100% wool assuring that any project knit or crocheted in this yarn will be extra warm but the yarn is light and fluffy like “Air”.

This colorful cowl takes two hanks of yarn in two different colorways. The stitch in combination with the two different colors of yarn give the final project a woven look. To check out this pattern from L & B Yarn Co. just click here!!

Brioche Scarf

This Brioche Scarf pattern by Vanessa Ewing is the perfect pattern for a beginner two color brioche knitter. The basic brioche consists of just a few stitches that you already know, including: slips, yo, k2tog, and p2tog.

In the correct combination the stitches create a reversible finished project. Brioche is beautiful, textural, and appears to have vertical lines much different than just a rib stitch.

L & B Yarn Co. used 2 hanks of Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet, one multi and one tonal. The pattern can be downloaded for free on Plymouth Yarns website. Just click here!

I missed the boat to make these for Christmas gifts but, I’m going to get a jump start for next year and start knitting these for all my family and friends.

I made the adult small with just one ball of the lovely Debbie Bliss Luxury Tweed. This yarn is soft, bouncy, and warm. This yarn is a must try if  you haven’t used it before I know you will love it.

This crochet messy bun hat by Danielle LaChance is a simple easy to follow pattern that can be adjusted to any size. If you haven’t made one of these hats yet, it’s a must for all crocheters and knitters.  I wear mine all over town all the time and I get so many compliments! Everyone is loving and needs messy bun!

L & B used Malabrigo Rios a 100% superwash merino wool. This yarn is a wonderful worsted weight yarn with incredible color options and the softness of Malabrigo all in one. To take a look at the pattern just click here!


Offhand Lace

Offhand Lace by Caitlin ffrench was the perfect pattern to show off the beautiful Noro Tennen. This new yarn comes in natural colors that shift in tones highlighting its fiber content of wool, alpaca, and silk.

The pattern is simple yet keeps the creators attention by changing from one stitch pattern to the next creating texture and interest to the finished project. The original pattern calls for a bulky weight but Tennen is more of a light worsted.

We were able to create a good size piece with just two skeins of this single ply yarn. The pattern offers two versions but we used the one with the seed stitch. To take a look at the pattern just click here!

L & B Yarn Co. has Noro Tennen in six gorgeous colors!
