The Wildfell Hat by Cheryl Kubat
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of pattern designer Cheryl Kubat and her company Tangled Handknits. She has an amazing way of coming up with designs using our yarns that never would have crossed my mind in a million years. Her Wildfell Hat pattern is definitely one of those. I love the way this hat channels traditional Russian fur hats but puts a modern twist on them. The hat has amazing texture because of the way our Pixie Dust yarn is knit along with our Sister yarn. It may be getting warmer out but I think I might just have to knit this now and save it for next fall! Take a peak at the pics below and be sure to check out the pattern too!

The Chelsea Morning Leg Warmers
I am extremely thrilled to release our very first leg warmer pattern today! These perfect leg warmers, designed by Cheryl Kubat, are adorable in our Daisy Chain yarn. This yarn is slightly less bulky than our other handspun yarns (a size 8 through 11 needle works well). The lighter weight helps make these leg warmers less bulky when worn. They would also be so perfect for this weird in between spring and winter weather we’re having right now in Boston!
In this pattern, we give you 2 options- a 2 skein leg warmer pattern and a 3 skein leg warmer pattern.
The 3 skein leg warmer option has a stirrup heel detail and is longer - 19” in total length from heel edge, so great for scrunching!
The 2 skein leg warmer option has no stirrup heel detail and is shorter- 13” in length. Take a peek at our samples below. The pattern is available on Ravelry for $3 here. Our samples are in colors Grasshopper & Sweet Papaya.

The Candy Cowl by Loop London
The London shop Loop holds a special place in my heart. The owner Susan was the very first person to show interest in our yarns and place an order. We have been shipping yarn to Susan and Loop ever since. Her shop is in the cutest neighborhood, Islington, in London. It's chock full of gorgeous yarns that all tell a story.
Last week, Loop came out with a gorgeous cowl pattern that uses 1 skein of our Gypsy Garden or Rolling Stone yarns striped with a thin skein of mohair. Take a peek at their sample below and be sure to visit their blog here. I also whipped one up using 1 skein of Daisy Chain in Natural Aura and a random mohair that was hiding in my stash from years ago. To see more photos of my project, visit my ravely page here.
Loop's sample is in Gypsy Garden colorway Stardus Garland.
