Many of you have been faithfully stalking your local Jo-ann store in hope of finding my new yarn, but unfortunately have struck out (there’s still a couple more days for them to get it set-up). First off, I just have to say that that makes me feel all gushy inside. Second, I wanted to let you know that the amazing web team at Bernat (shout out to: Cori, Jen, Kaleigh & Amanda!) hustled their butts off to make Bernat Cotton-ish by Vickie Howell available for purchase online for stitchers NOW!
The Bernat Design Team and I have put together a cool, fun and accessible launch collection to inspire you. I’ll take time over the coming weeks to talk about each of them (as well as introduce more!), but today I thought I’d feature one of my favorites by my friend, Nicole: the Yes, Yes Shawl.
The same shawl can be pretty and sweet, and funky and chic depending on how you wear it. Wrap it around your shoulders for a flirty and feminine look, or wear it like an oversized scarf (I prefer jauntily askew) for a cool and relaxed feel.
Well, whattya waiting for? Head on over to Bernat.com now to nab some Cotton-ish and a free pattern or two to go with it!
P.S. Don’t forget to fave/stash it on Ravelry, too!
YARNYAY! FALL BOX REVEAL:
Every season, YarnYAY! presents a new box for knitters who are ready to dive into a more in-depth project than our regular monthly boxes. For Autumn, we've gone mad for plaid, and are thrilled to have partnered with FOUR other (besides mine) woman-owned, small businesses. (Tap to see.)
We're shipping these box beauties on Tuesday 10/17 and only have a limited amount. Reserve yours today, in whatever palette speaks to you, and we'll get it to you ASAP. Link in @vickiehowell bio, or visit yarnyay.com...
FREE Pattern 🚨 Alert: The Ginger Spice Bi-Color Brioche Scarf! We couldn't resist whipping up this beauty out of the YarnYAY! October featured yarn @thefibrecompany &Make Aran (in colors Spill the Tea and Mon Ami). Make it to match either pair of the mitt patterns that come with our October Box, or make it on its own. You do you!
This pattern comes free with the purchase of &Make Aran yarn from our shop. Add the pattern to your cart, and the discount will appear at checkout. Who's feeling spicy? yarnyay.com (link in @vickiehowell bio).
The Forager wrist warmers by @hellogavriella (and featured in the YarnYAY! October Box) might be my favorite crocheted mitt pattern we've ever included in one of our monthly boxes. The wool/alpaca blend of @thefibrecompany &Make Aran yarn is the perfect medium for textured linen stitches. Oh, and the peek-a-boo detailing at the top-edges, is *chef's kiss"!
Treat yourself to the October Box to get this pattern (plus THREE more!), yarn, and a couple more awesomely autumnal items. Link in @vickiehowell bio (or go to yarnyay.com) to learn more.
