We found our new favorite staple yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash, now available in 100 colors at 25% off at Little Knits!
220 yards of 100% superwash wool in any shade you could dream of. Soft enough to wear next to the skin and tough enough to withstand machine washing. Note: 220 Superwash is a slightly lighter weight than traditional Cascade 220. If you’re planning to substitute, be sure to check your gauge.
Cascade offers a great selection of free patterns written for 220 Superwash. We’re especially charmed by the kid’s sweaters, but there’s something for everyone! Check out all the patterns here.
There’s still plenty of Noro Hitsuji still in stock at 50% off here at Little Knits! Another pattern book featuring quick knits in Hitsuji is Noro’s World of Nature, Volume 30. We love the eclectic variety of patterns this book has to offer: men’s, women’s and unisex sweaters, accessories, and kid’s sweaters too! All designed to showcase Noro’s signature stripes.
Noro World of Nature Volume 30 offers four patterns in Hitsuji. An easy, layer-able sleeveless jacket takes just 3-4 skeins, while the hooded coat in textured basket-weave takes 7 skeins (the pattern is written in one size only, to fit bust sizes 34-38″).
Finally, the adorable child’s vest with ribbing detail and back motif takes just two skeins, as does the reverse-stockinette stitch tote bag! These projects will take no time at all to complete – keep yourself and your loved ones toasty and colorful with some Hitsuji!
Just arrived at Little Knits: Rowan’s Mini Collection of patterns for Kidsilk Haze Stripe!
The collection includes six patterns by Marie Wallin. They range from Sylvie, a simple, wearable v-neck pullover, to Eva, a cozy wrap sweater with unique construction. Each pattern shows off the striping of the yarn without looking too busy.
Kidsilk Haze Stripe is Rowan’s famous blend of super kid mohair and silk, with colorways developed by the color master Kaffe Fassett. Plus, it’s 25% off at Little Knits!
Use these patterns and yarn to add a statement piece to your wardrobe!
Here’s another pattern we love from the Spring 2014 issue of Interweave Knits (available at 12% off the cover price at Little Knits!)
Kate Gagnon Osborn’s classic designs never disappoint. Her Meltwater Pullover brings a classic Icelandic motif to a sleek, flattering garment for all seasons.
We love playing with color, and Berroco offers a wide pallet sure to satisfy any knitter. We picked out two color pallets we love for this sweater: on the left, Ultra Alpaca Light and on the right, Vintage DK. Both yarns are 20% of at Little Knits!
If you’re new to colorwork, the magazine includes a highly informative article about the technique by Daniela Nii! It’s a great read, even if you’re a seasoned pro.
Now 35% off at Little Knits, Minksquisite is our new fingering weight blend of 70% mink, 20% merino and 10% silk. We challenge you to find a softer yarn! The subtle heathers will show off more ambitious, complicated patterns, or pair perfectly together for colorwork. It has fantastic drape with a soft halo, and generous yardage – 330 yards per 50 gram ball!
If you need another excuse to fall in love with Minksquisite, we chose a collection of patterns just screaming for a little extra luxury.
