New store samples: Farmhouse & Windward

Farmhouse by Cabinfour

Farmhouse by cabinfour is a big, soft shawl which is as simple to knit as it is to wear. Wrap yourself in its lightweight, warm embrace and let the winter winds howl on. The original pattern is designed with worsted weight yarn but we opted to hold a strand of sport weight yarn (Quince & Co’s Chickadee) together with a strand of fuzzy worsted weight yarn (Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk) for a larger, even cozier version.

Windward by Heidi Kirrmaier

We’ve knit Heidi Kirrmaier’s Windward twice before with fingering weight yarn but this is our first version with a lace weight. The result is a light and dramatic accessory, stunning whichever way you wear it! The interesting construction of Heidi’s pattern is is accentuated by the changing colours of the Noro Taiyo Lace yarn and the cotton, linen, and silk blend creates irresistible texture.
