Merino Worsted | Camellia Fiber Co.
This yarn is beautifully spun 100% superfine merino in a versatile 4-ply worsted weight, with a firm twist and round shape, making it ideal for rendering crisp stitch definition. Our selections this month are Autumn-worthy shades, Terracotta and Dahlia.

Headband Patterns | Designs by Angela Tong & Vickie Howell
This month’s projects are giving us a head start on Fall fashion! The knit version, designed by Angela Tong, incorporates playful, wavy ribbing.
The crochet version, by me, juxtaposes two multi-directional rib techniques.
