As a thank you for supporting GYI in 2020, we’re rolling over all your remaining Frequent Buyer Points earned in the last 12 months to become the start of your 2021 points. Ordinarily, points expire on December 31, but not this crazy year!
We also have another thank you — a free PDF download for my Bitty Bulky Hat pattern for both newborn and 3-6 month sizes. Whatever the time of year, babies need soft, cozy hats on their little noggins. This hat knits up quickly with chunky yarn on size US 9/5.5mm needles. The comfy garter ribbing won’t ever be too tight. My newborn size samples, below, were made with my favorite Cascade 128 Superwash (pink) and Berroco Vintage Chunky (white).
(Don’t know any babies right now? You can use the newborn size directions to make a tree ornament just by downsizing the gauge and using sock weight yarn and US 01/2.25mm needles.)
Click below to download your copy of my Bitty Bulky Hat pattern and enjoy.
Back by popular demand, we have a very limited supply of our durable GYI Logo Project Bags. Get your 9×11″ zippered bag before they’re all gone!
I have great FOs to share… our customer Catherine uses nothing but Vintage Worsted for her beautiful crocheted afghans. She was kind enough to send along this picture of her latest. I love that windowpane edging.
Tina posted pictures of two of her recent projects in our GYI Group on Ravelry and graciously allowed me to feature them here. Her cabled Realeza Cowl was knit with one of our new Pintada colors of Rasta. The pattern is from her personal library, but if you’d like to make a similar cowl using only one skein of Rasta, try Susan Ashcroft’s free pattern, Rasta Swirl.
We have many of these beautiful Pintada colors still in stock:
Tina’s other FO is the It’s Bitter Cold Hat by Carol Bristol, which is also free on Ravelry. She used Cascade 128 Superwash. Bet both of these pretty pieces would be super quick knits if you need any last-minute gift ideas!
Bonnie created her Occam* from designer Bristol Ivy with two shades of silky Metalico from Blue Sky Fibers. I included the second photo to prove that, yes, those horizontal stripes you start with really do become chevron stripes by the end of this clever scarf.
We recently received word from Rowan that nearly all the remaining colors from our order of Felted Tweed should arrive in their North Carolina warehouse from the U.K. today or tomorrow. They’ll need about a week to process and ship orders — ours and hundreds of other local yarn shops’ — but we hope to see our missing colors before the end of the year. To celebrate, we’re planning a Felted Tweed KAL for the New Year. Stay tuned for details! Until then, we already have a wonderful paintbox of colors…
