YarnYAY! February Box #46
It’s time for the reveal of what’s included in the second YarnYAY! subscription box of 2022! The YarnYAY! February Box #46 features gorgeous products and projects from SIX different women-owned (or co-owned) businesses. Here’s what’s inside!
Gunnison | Tahki Yarns
This month’s yarn evokes the spirit of warmth & coziness. When stitched up, the loft of the single-ply Italian wool mixed with a polyacrylic strand of color makes for unexpected pops of color.
Tahki Yarns was founded by Stacy Charles, and a part of the WEBS catalog of yarns. Learn more at: yarn.com
Shawl collar Cowls patterns | Designs by Vickie Howell & Spring Summer ’22 Designer in Residence, Julia Madill
This month, we’re saying shawl, y’all! Shawl-collar cowls, that is. The knit version, designed by Vickie, is knit flat, collared with simple short rows, then creatively seamed.
The crochet cowl, designed by our Spring/Sumer Designer in Residence, combines third-loop rib with short-rows. Both are topped off with a large button.
