Free Pattern Thursday: Cable Style in Universal Yarn Eden Silk

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

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!

There are only a few days left to save on April Anniversary Sale yarn! Have you picked up what you wanted yet? I still have a few things I need to purchase before May 1st.

This week’s free pattern features one of our April Anniversary Sale Yarns. The Quilt and Cable Blanket is knit in Cascade Eco+.

Cascade Eco+ is normally $20.00, but for the month of April, it’s on sale for $13.99. The blanket takes 4 hanks of the yarn, so this cozy project will total $55.96, which is a great price for a 100% wool blanket.

This week’s free pattern is a crochet pattern from Tahki. The Paris Tunic is crocheted in Cotton Classic Lite.

Tahki Cotton Classic Lite is part of our Anniversary Sale, so it’s a great time to grab the yarn for this pattern. You’ll need 5-8 hanks depending on the size, so the total cost would be $22.95-$$36.72, which is an incredible deal! There are great colors available, so you’re sure to find something you like. You could go neutral with black or fun and bright with a pink!

The Paris Tunic is crocheted in one piece from the top down and it would be a great layer for spring and summer. I think that this one may actually go in my queue!

Free Pattern Thursday: Bunny Nuggets by Danger Crafts

This week’s free pattern is absolutely adorable! We’re featuring the Bunny Nuggets from Danger Crafts.

I love all of the Danger Craft patterns and these are no exception! Not only are they ridiculously cute, they’re also super fast and a great way to use up scraps of yarn.

You can use any gauge yarn you have. Choose sock yarn and you’ll have a tiny bunny friend, bulky yarn and you’ll have a bigger pal. I love the safety eyes and safety noses, but if you’re thinking about giving one of these cuties to a young child, you’ll want to embroider or needlefelt the face.

With Easter just a couple of days away, I’m thinking of whipping up a few of these to give to my favorite kids (and maybe some grown-ups too!).

Free Pattern Thursday: Longmeadow Cuff in Valley Yarns Longmeadow

This week’s free pattern is from ChickenBetty (aka Sara, our crochet-guru!). The Longmeadow Cuff is a great way to practice your broomstick lace.

The cuffs are worked in Valley Yarns Longmeadow, which is a wonderful blend of cotton and microfiber. It’s a great yarn for spring and summer!

Have you ever tried broomstick lace? I created a shawl using the technique several years ago and it was pretty fun. At first, it was a little nerve-wracking sliding those loops off of the big needle, but after a while, I got used to it and it was tons of fun!

Free Pattern Thursday: Kabak in Berroco Versa

We have had some crazy weather here in the Northeast lately. It has felt more like late spring/early summer than the end of winter! This weekend, they’re predicting temps around 70 degrees. I know some places have experienced record snowfall this winter, and after all the snow we had last year, I feel for you.

All of the warm weather has me thinking of lighter weight projects and about exploring all of the spring yarns that have arrived over the last couple months.

This week’s free pattern is from Berroco. Kabak is a sleeveless knit shirt with a dropped stitch detail down the front. It is knit in Berroco Versa.

Berroco Versa is machine washable cotton/acrylic blend that’s full of color. It is a twin ribbon yarn that has fantastic drape and is wonderfully soft.

Free Pattern Thursday: Breda’s Cowl in Fibre Company Road to China Light

This week’s free pattern is a lovely crocheted cowl from The Fibre Company. Breda’s Cowl is crocheted in Road to China Light.

I love that even though this cowl is simple, single crochet, it has pizzazz thanks to the colorful stripes. Road to China Light is a gorgeous yarn (like all of the yarns from The Fibre Company). I love the pop the peridot gives, and I’m not usually a fan of green. With the warmer weather on the way (it’s going to be unseasonably warm here today – a taste of spring), it’s nice to have smaller accessory projects that you can finish quick and still get some wear in before it gets too warm for cozy yarns.

Hi Everyone,

This week’s free pattern is a great project for the upcoming warmer weather and a great layering piece. East Village is knit in Rowan Creative Linen.

This men’s sweater has an allover slip stitch pattern that is classic. This sweater won’t go out of style! Rowan Creative Focus Linen is a crisp, but soft blend of cotton and linen. The largest size takes 7 hanks, so with the 20% discount, the sweater would be $72.52, which isn’t a bad price for a men’s sweater that won’t go out of season.
