New Patterns

I'm pleased to introduce a handful of new patterns that you can order from our website. Like most of our patterns, they are available as both PDFs and as print copies.

The Woven Checkerboard Laptop Bag and Purse are easy enough for beginner knitters and knit up quickly in garter stitch and worsted weight yarn. For those of you headed back to school, the large bag would be perfect for carrying your books or laptop while the small bag is just the right size for life's little necessities (wallet, phone, lipgloss and sunglasses)!

Before we know it there will be a chill in the air as we head towards fall. But there is no need to pack away your summer skirts- just slip on a pair of The Thigh's The Limit thigh-high stockings! They are also great layered under pants for an extra layer of wooly warmth once the winter freeze sets in. This pattern is written for our Gradiance collection.

For those of you attending the Sock Summit next week or celebrating this historic event from afar, here is a sock pattern for you! Peaks and Valleys has a mountain range inspired pattern that is fun to knit and ideal for multicolored yarns. You can really get in the Sock Summit spirit by knitting it in our Ascent colorway which was inspired by the Sock Summit logo!
