Our Newest KAL

Julia will begin her 2nd KAL on Monday August 3. She has chosen the Butterfly Cowl- a small version of the Papillon. Come pick out your colors (we suggest a DK weight yarn combo such as those shown below) but you can also choose to work this cowl in fingering weight yarns as shown on Jen below.
The pattern is available on Ravelry- you can purchase it from us or on your own. Julia suggests size 5 circular needles for the DK weight yarns.
This is not a Facebook Live or Zoom event, but Julia will post some videos and is available for questions on our Facebook Group Page. She is also available for Help Sessions on Monday. All of our help sessions teachers are also available to help you on this project.
A small version of the Papillon– a large exotic triangular shawl.
If you have dreamed of knitting the Papillon– we suggest you try your hand at this smaller piece first.
Here Julia used less than 50g of 2 fingering weight yarns to make her Butterfly Cowl.
Here is Julia’s Butterfly Cowl in progress. Took just 2–50 g balls of cotton.
Julia used 1–50g ball of Degrade Sun- a dk weight drifting color cotton. and 1– 50g ball of Sirdar 100% Cotton- another dk weight cotton in solid colors. Many color combos available as shown below.
Our color guru Jen put together 8 color combo suggestions for the Butterfly Cowl. We have many additional colors available in both yarns: Katia Degrade Sun and Sirdar 100% cotton- both DK weight yarns.

New Washcloth Kits

Many of you know that I LOVE Washcloths. They are a great way to learn a new stitch or new technique. Even if you make mistakes- they will be the very best washcloth you have ever used. And if you need to stay home, you may enjoy having a few of these kits ready to work up. In each future newsletter, I will include a new washcloth pattern for you to try (I’ll include crochet patterns too). This might be fun!
New Washcloth Kits are ready to go- cost $5.00.
Kits contain 50g Fantasy Naturale 100% mercerized cotton plus the pattern shown here: The Starfish cloth.
Many colors available.
Going forward, I will include a NEW Washcloth pattern in each newsletter.

New Washcloth Patterns

As I promised- here are two new washcloth patterns.
Each washcloth takes less than 50g of Fantasy Naturale.
Today I am including 2 knit cloths- one to try out cables and the
other to try some eyelets.
