Guest: Linda Pratt of Westminster fibers talks with Kathy about SMC Yarns. SMC is a shortened version of the Schachenmayr brand. The brand has been given a huge face-lift and rejuvenation. SMC Select is a little higher end, fashion-focused line. Several of the Gedifra yarns have been absorbed into SMC Select.

Steve’s Big Announcement!
We’re excited to introduce Knitter’s Pride needles, hooks, and accessories that we’re now carrying online and in our store. Check out our entire Knitter’s Pride collection!

Dreamz – laminated birch (Symfonie wood) needles, every size is a different color

If you experience any problems with any of the parts and pieces of your Knitter’s Pride needles or hooks, just let us know and we’ll get a replacement right out to you!

We’ve also got a ton of accessories! Sock blockers, cable needles, stitch holders, chart keepers, magnet boards, shawl pins and more!

CAL with Kirsten
After the crochet chain, you’ll work the main body of the cowl. Round 4 and 5 you work into the chain, not the chain space. You should have a loose gauge here, so you shouldn’t have to force the hook.

Learn from us and make sure you check your gauge! A couple double crochets off over four inches makes a huge difference in the finished size. Make sure you’re working nice and loose!
