This week’s free pattern comes to us from the folks at Berroco. Casale is knit in Berroco Captiva and is perfect for showing off the yarn. The shaker rib pattern adds a bit of a different look to the rib and look great with the Captiva. The whole sweater has a very “beachy” feel. The ribbing pulls the sweater in just a little giving it a shape without having to worry about working shaping.

Berroco Captiva is a lovely blend of

Tahki Cotton Classic is a wonderful yarn for the warmer months, and this week’s free pattern, the Nautical Stripes Boatneck Pullover is a fantastic summer sweater!

Tahki Cotton Classic is a 100% cotton yarn that, as the name says, is a classic. You can experiment with changing the main color and stripes. It would also look great if you pair two fun, bright colors. Or you could go neutral and still look fantastic.

This week’s free pattern is a wonderfully simple infinity scarf from the folks at BeSweet. The Bamboo Infinity Scarf is knit in BeSweet Bamboo. This would be a great “mindless” project to carry around.

This yarn is incredibly soft and has spectacular drape. The simplicity of the scarf really lets the beauty of the yarn, with its slight sheen and gorgeous colors shine.

Since it is bamboo, it’s an accessory that you can wear year-round. It won’t be too hot for the summer months. It is a great way to spice up your outfit with a little bit of color. And, BeSweet Bamboo is machine washable!

Free Pattern Thursday: Horizontal Vertical Kimono in Cascade 220 Superwash

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?

Free Pattern Thursday: Bessie Stole in S. Charles Collezione Luna and Stella

This week we feature another free pattern that uses yarns from our Anniversary Sale. The Bessie Positive/Negative Stole has an ethereal beauty reminiscent of shooting stars and the night sky. The wispy S. Charles Collezione Luna creates a delicate halo, while S. Charles Collezione Stella creates the clearly defined, contrasting lines.

Luna is a light, airy blend of super kid mohair, silk, and lurex. It has a wonderful halo and just a touch of sparkle that makes it perfect for special occasions.

Stella blends silk and lurex for a sophisticated yarn with sparkle that won’t be overbearing. The two yarns pair beautifully in this project.

There’s no better time to grab the yarn for this project than now, when it’s on sale. I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe there’s only one week left until May. It seems like just yesterday we were discussing what yarns were going to go in the Anniversary Sale, and now it’s almost over. That reminds me, I’d better figure out what I want to stock up on!

This week’s free pattern comes from Universal Yarn. It is called Cable Style and is a lovely pullover that is knit in Universal Yarn Eden Silk.

Eden Silk is a lovely blend of wool and silk. Since the two fibers take the dye differently, there is a slightly heathered look to the yarn which adds interest. It also happens to be in our sale this month!

The classic design of this sweater has cables that not only offer visual interest, but also interest while knitting. This sweater will live long in your wardrobe!
