Welcome LYS Day

FREE Pattern from Casapinka
Bronwyn of Casapinka fame has very generously provided us with coupon codes for her new pattern design: Magical Thinking. Bronwyn calls this garment a “pullover shawl”, not a poncho. Check out the pictures on the pattern page (looks like a poncho to me- and I love it!).
On Saturday, April 27- LYS Day, with the purchase of 3– 100g hanks of Fingering weight yarn – enough to make this design – we will provide you with
a coupon code to get the pattern yourself FREE on Ravelry. You MUST download the pattern no later than Sunday 4/28 as the coupon will expire at midnight like Cinderella’s pumpkin coach!

FREE Patterns from Plymouth Yarn Co

On Saturday, April 27, with the purchase of any Plymouth Yarn for the above designs get the pattern FREE at TKE. The Encore mitered throw can be knit in Encore, Galway, or Worsted Merino Superwash. The 2 Pendenza cotton designs can also be knit in Cleo cotton or DK Merino Superwash.
All 3 garments are at The Knitter’s Edge for you to look at more closely.

This FREE pattern is knit in Abstract Coralline held doubled. Just one hank needed.
Shown flat-a pretty design and an easy knit.

Dye Class with Joe Cole!

This year’s featured dyeing class at The Knitter’s Edge is called “Speckle It !” and hopefully by the title you can guess what you’ll be doing. That’s right, we’ll be doing one of the many speckling dye methods. You’ll also get the option to do a lite single color over- dye.
There will be 2 sessions on Saturday June 15. 10 – 12pm & 1 – 3pm.
Class cost is $25, which includes materials needed for dyeing. Does not include yarn. Class fee covers the dyeing of 1 skein. Additional skeins may be dyed for an additional fee of $5 per skein.
The Knitter’s edge has the undyed yarn and sock blanks (superwash only for this method) for sale at the shop.
Please wear something comfortable that you do not mind getting ruined. This method of speckling can get messy and you might get dye on clothing.
Dye Class Seats on sale NOW at TKE.
Contact us at TKE to sign up. (610-419-9276) Registration fee payable upon sign up.
