This week’s featured free pattern is a stylish, slouchy hat knit in Plymouth Coffee Beanz. The Coffee Beanz Hat is a simple knit that is fun to wear.

Sometimes when it seems too hot to knit, accessories are a great option and you’ll end up with a stash of warm projects when you need them in the winter. It’s also a great time to get a jump on gift knitting.

Plymouth Coffee Beanz is a machine washable blend of acrylic and wool. When knit, it has wonderful flecks thanks to the accent of a variegated ply.

Summer is in full swing here at WEBS and this week’s free pattern is a great summer top! Windsor is a fitted tee that features a high ribbed welt, a ribbed collar, and four buttons down the front. This is a great standby to have for spring and summer.

It is knit in Rowan Summerspun, a great multi-season blend of wool and cotton. The multicolored yarn works up into a lovely fabric that has lots of interest. Even this simple stockinette stitch top looks like it has a lot of interest thanks to the way this yarn is created.

Free Pattern Thursday: Horizontal Vertical Kimono in Cascade 220 Superwash

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

It’s the last day of our Anniversary Sale, and we have one last free pattern that features a sale yarn. The Horizontal Vertical Kimono is knit in Cascade 220 Superwash.

While the name of the Cascade Yarns Horizontal Vertical Kimono may be a little perplexing, the garment is not… Its simply adorable. This stylish tunic-length vest is knit side-to-side (hence the “horizontal” in the name), yet when it is worn the pattern runs vertically. The various stitch patterns add some beautiful texture without detracting from the garment as a whole. This vest can be made both in different bust sizes and in different lengths, allowing for a more custom fit.

I can’t believe May is over! And I really can’t believe the Anniversary Sale is coming to a close. Do you have any projects planned for your Anniversary Sale yarns?
