Valley Yarns Pattern Feature – Cranwell Hat

Our new Cranwell Hat uses our Charlemont Kettle Dye and is crocheted using 2 strands which gives the yarn a dappled appearance.  A round of post stitches at the edge of the crown and reverse single crochet at the brim give it that perfect finishing touch, and with the yarn held doubled throughout it works up very quickly.

This is a great hat for the beach, a round of golf, or a summer picnic, and it’s the perfect summer project for under $20. The PDF is just $3.99 and one skein of Charlemont Kettle Dye, at $15.99, is enough for the whole hat.

Which shade of Charlemont Kettle Dye will you use?

This week’s featured pattern graces the cover of our 2014 Valley Catalog, the Falling Leaves Shawl. This has been one of our most popular patterns of the last few years. Originally knit in the soft Stone Blue color of Valley Yarns Stockbridge it has gotten a stylish update in the Fall Festival colorway of Valley Yarns Charlemont hand dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer.

The simple, biasing lace stitch works together with the vibrant hand-dyed colors to resemble a canopy of changing autumn leaves. Check out all the gorgeous completed Falling Leaves Shawls over on Ravelry.

We featured the individual blooms on the divider pages separating the different weights of yarns throughout the catalog and thought these would make a great pattern collection!

They look wonderful grouped together as a centerpiece or as a wallhanging by simply pinning then to the wall or corkboard.
