What’s New from Ravelry

Vee Vee Shawl – FREE pattern

Vees created with short rows.  A very easy to knit and well written design.  FREE!  Here we used Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light- a fingering weight.  Just 1–100g hank each of 2 colorways needed.  
Come see this shawl at The Knitter’s Edge.

Another Vee Vee Shawl Sample

 Here, Joe Cole of What The Flock Yarn used his electric colorways to create the same shawl as above.  Hummm, not sure which shawl I like better- both are stunning!


An easy to knit seamless topper for Spring & Summer.  Knit it in Hempathy, Eco Baby Cotton, Cleo Cotton or our new Medina cotton blend.


Dixie Charm Wrap– FREE Crochet pattern

WOW- I love this elegant showstopper shawl.  People are always asking for rectangular shawls- and here is one great design.  Crochet this FREE pattern in Anne Cotton, Mirasol Nuna for fall, or our new Calico for drape at a great price.


Miss Molly Tee

A sweet summery tee to knit up quickly in a light sport 
weight yarn such as Hempathy.
